The effusive eruption of the volcano continues and has remained essentially unchanged since the last update.

The University of the West Indies Seismic Research Centre (UWI-SRC) led by geologist prof. Richard Robertson in collaboration with National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) reported that the new extruded lava dome remains active on the edge of the old lava dome from 1979 and still growing in size.

Visibility for aerial flights of the new effusive phase was very limited due to dense clouds yesterday, but the event is possible to observe from the Belmont observatory.

A satellite image from 3 January identified elevated surface temperatures of the new lava dome.

The Volcanic Alert Level remains at Orange.
