SUMMARY OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE VOLCANO
The volcanic activity is currently low.
During last night, the descent of small lahars produced by precipitation was recorded.

TECHNICAL AND OBSERVATIONS APPENDIX
Seismicity:
From 11:00 (TL) yesterday until 11:00 (TL) today, it was recorded two volcano-tectonic events (VT) and 7 long period events (LP).
Observations emissions and ashes:
During the afternoon and of the evening of yesterday, the volcano remained covered and the surface activity could not be observed.
In the early hours of the morning, we could see a layer of snow on the sides of the crater up to 500 meters below the summit, then the volcano is clouded.

Rain and lahars:
The rains during the night, generated small lahars, with blocks of 30 cm in diameter, which are descended from the gullies of Bilbao, Pingullo and Chontapamba. We also recorded the descent of muddy water through the gullies of Vazcun and Jewish.

GENERAL INFORMATION
If more intense rain problems persist in the volcano area, they can re-mobilize deposits from pyroclastic flows and generate lahars . For this reason, we recommend extreme caution when driving on roads and highways that cross the gorges through which these flows are down and the regions which in the past have been affected by this kind of phenomenon.
