Activity of the Volcano
Update:13:53 local time february 08 :
First eruption of the day was heard around 10:57 local time, accompanied by a short period of ash-emission. Plume reached around 600-800m in height.
Update: 00:00 local time
During the afternoon and evening degassing continued, accompanied by medium to strong rumbling sounds, and periodically strong crater-glow. The crater-glow seems to be caused by super-heated gas. Incandescent material was seen ejected from the crater at 20:31 during a small eruption, that saw a few rocks been thrown out of the crater area. Later in the evening incandescent material was also seen, but landed within the crater area. Ash-emissions only occurred in a short period after the 10:57 eruption, and not in the afternoon or evening.
Activity of the VolcanoUpdate 19:38:
Medium to strong degassing was observed throughout the day. Crater-glow present during early morning and evening. Weather conditions prevented observations at certain times of the day.
