Lava spreads and prompts confinements which are later lifed as risk reduces.
In the last two days there has been 23 earthquakes, four of which were felt by the population.The maximum magnitude recorded is 3.6 (mbLg) corresponding to the earthquake felt with maximum intensity III-IV in the epicentral zone at 14:13 UTC 1st October. The column height measured at 7:30 am today (02/10/2021) is 4500m, a slightly lower value than the previous day (IGN, 2021). Two vents opened 600 m NW from the main cone on October 1st. Lava flows from these new vents travelled west and connected to the main lava flow field. Lava flows were accompanied by explosions ejecting pyroclastic materials up to 3.3 km from the vent (GVP, 2021).
