The massif has presented two pulses during the last 24 hours.
A possible third could generate "a new crater".
According to the head of the organization, the situation remains solid "complex" and could have a different evolution to that of the two pulses already submitted; the last of them in the early morning hours .
In that vein, Alvarez warned that there is a possibility that a new crater that gives way to a more aggressive eruption generated.
"There was a pulse starting at 01:00 am which lasted about seven hours. That pulse ended, but we're probably having a different trend, with a different type of eruption," he said.
The scenario considered is a possible third eruption "will no longer be concentrated in high columns, but could be the possibility of developing a new crater and crater that could generate perhaps a little more aggressive eruption".
Anyway, according to projections, the risk remains "within the restricted area (20 km), which does not vary" .
"Therefore, this scenario occurs, according to the background to be driving, it would be more aggressive (the phenomenon), but in the same vicinity of the massif" he summarized.
