A new vent has been observed in the location where ash venting occurred on 23 March 2012. The vent is located in the floor of the 11 February 2010 collapse scar and is immediately south of the remnants of the old English’s Crater wall and southwest of the long-lived hottest fumarole previously identified. It is estimated that the vent is between 30 and 50 metres across.
The photos were taken from a helicopter north of the volcano looking south by Greg Scott, Caribbean Helicopters.
No further ash venting has occurred since 23 March.
