Persistent nighttime glow observations on Whakaari / White Island web cameras indicate continued high temperature gas emission. Observation of the night glow on web cameras continued from June 30 until today. Last week's thermal infrared (IR) observation and measurement flight reported the emission of very hot gas (498-654°C) from some of the 2019 lava extrusion vents.
The continued drop in the carbon dioxide / sulfur dioxide ratio indicates continued degassing of fresh magma.
The volcanic alert level has been raised to 2 and the aviation color code to yellow.
While Volcanic Alert Level 2 is primarily associated with the risks of volcanic unrest (including releases of hot volcanic steam and gases, earthquakes, landslides, and hydrothermal activity), there are also Risk of rash and rashes can always occur with little or no warning.

" The Volcanological Observatory of Goma (OVG) informs the entire population of Goma and its surroundings that this Saturday, July 24, 2021 afternoon, a fall of dust / volcanic ash over a large part of the surrounding area is observed from the Nyiragongo volcano.
These ashes come from the collapse of part of the crust of the central crater of the Nyiragongo volcano. This event has no relation to a certain eruptive activity of the volcano which could worry the public.
The OVG then asks everyone to observe the rules of hygiene by carefully covering food and dishes as well as to reserve the use of rainwater as drinking water. "
