(translated from French)
ūüďĚ The eruption that began September 15 at 4:25 am local time continues. The volcanic tremor (indicator of eruptive intensity at the surface), has remained at a relatively stable and low level since 18:00 on September 15 (14:00 UTC), despite some variations in recent days. Four volcano-tectonic earthquakes were recorded under the summit craters during the day of 18 September, as well as an additional one during the current day. These observations confirm the position of the different casting fronts observed yesterday. The casting had traveled about 2.8 km and was 500m from the southern wall of Enclos Fouqu√©.The maximum width of the casting was 660 m.
