The deformation of the terrain has remained stable in recent days. Since the beginning of the activity, 22 cm of vertical deformation has been recorded at the GNSS station LP03. The eruption has produced a lava flow with several fronts , which after advancing at about 700 m / h during the first days, have been slowing down to less than 10 m / h. Since yesterday, the ash column has exceeded 5,000 m in height above mean sea level.

This video shows lava flows moving down the steep side of the volcano and the slow creeping of the lava front towards homes on the 24th of September. Sourced from IGME (2021).
