For its part, the National Emergency Commission (CNE) said that the tremor is low in amplitude and is associated with the slow transit of fluids.
“In case the eruptive process should occur again, ash and gas emanated would be scattered to the southwest“, based on the wind direction reported by the weather station of the National Meteorological Institute, located at the top of the volcano.
These wind conditions are very unstable between 3,000 and 4,000 m s. n. m., so it is constantly changing its course, ” mentioned in the CNE.
