Phreatomagic activity is reduced and strombolian activity continues.

Since the last statement, 184 earthquakes have been located in the area. 17 of these earthquakes have been felt by the population. Of all the earthquakes located, 80 had a magnitude equal to or greater than 3.0 mbLg. 5 earthquakes have been located at depths around 30 km, the rest of the hypocenters of the period are located at a shallower depth, around 12 km. The amplitude of the volcanic tremor signal is maintained at medium-high levels, with intensifying pulses. The scattering cloud at 08:00 UTC reaches 2,000 m. The island’s network of permanent GNSS stations shows a vertical inflation of more than 10 cm compared to yesterday and deformation to the south at station LP03, which is the closest to the eruptive centres. On the other hand, in the most remote stations, a slight deflation is maintained, possibly related to deep seismicity (IGN, 2021).

This video taken on the 26th of October shows that phreatomagmatic eruptive behaviour has reduced but strombolian activity continues. Sourced from IGME (2021).
