The explosive eruption of the volcano continues.
After more than 2 days since Friday's eruption, another strong explosive episode from the volcano's summit crater occurred yesterday.
A major explosion started around 16:49 local time. A typical tall and dense ash plume rose to estimated 3 km altitude and drifted south and west.
The alert level for the volcano remains red.
