SUMMARY OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE VOLCANO
The activity remains moderate.
It was not observed for surface activity.
Technical and related observations:
11:00 (TL) yesterday at 11:00 (LT) Today, 25 events long period (LP) were recorded.
Observations of emissions and ash:
In the morning, the volcano was partly cloudy but no surface activity was observed.
Currently, the volcano sector is troubled by nebulosity.
Rain and lahars:
Light rain have been recorded in the area of the volcano that have not generated lahars.
If rainfall appear with more intensity 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 which cross rivers by which these flows are down and in areas which, in the past, have been affected by this phenomenon.
This daily report will be published at 12:00 (TL). If an increase or a change in the behavior of the volcano occurs it will immediately issued a special report.
