SUMMARY OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE VOLCANO
The activity of the volcano is moderate.
Weather conditions in the sector have not allowed the observations of the activity on the surface.
ANNEX TECHNICAL AND OBSERVATIONS:
From 11:00 (TL) yesterday until 11:00 (TL) today 2 episode of tremor emission (TE) and 23 long period (LP) events were recorded.
Observations emissions and ashes:
The volcano sector remained covered, it was not possible to observe the surface activity.
Currently, the weather is overcast continuously.
Rain and lahars:
Some rain were recorded in the sector without generating lahars.
If the rains are more intense in the volcano area, they can re-mobilize the deposits of pyroclastic flows and generate lahars . For this reason, we recommend extreme caution when driving on roads and highways that cross the gorge through which these flows are down and the regions which in the past have been affected by this kind of phenomenon.
