During most of the time, the volcano produces (usually silent) near-continuous ash puffs that reach varying heights of a few hundred meters, as well as intermittent vulcanian explosions with plume heights often exceeding 3 km. Often, the plumes from this activity merge into a continuous one that has been drifting into easterly directions where light to moderate ash fall occurs. Read more...
