As of September 21, 2017, the warning level for a possible eruption was raised to level 4, being the highest warning level. A lot a vulcanic activities were registered on a daily base.
Initially everybody was expecting an eruption within days. But nothing really happened and everything still remained basically the same. Despite some tremors and sometimes a little smoke from the volcano’s crater nothing really happened.
During the last week of October all vulcano activities dropped drastically.
This all resulted in a drop of the severity warning level from 4 to 3.
