During the evening of November 26, at 10 pm, the thick and gray plume rose up to 3,000 meters above the crater.
One photo shows two plumes, of a different color, possibly produced by two different vents, one emitting more ash, the other more steam. During the 1963 eruption, some researchers also thought about the existence of two vents.
The number of earthquakes is generally quite low, but the amplitude increases again.
