Lava fountains at the eruptive fracture are still active and restricted to the upper part of the cone. Lava flows that moved towards South and South-West are stopped and the active lava channel feeds now a new small lava flow that moves towards East. This new lava flow has grown by 750 m in two days.

Lava flows still not threaten road or inhabited area.
