The administration says that there is currently no danger to those living near the volcano, but evacuations may be initiated if the situation worsens.

The last time this volcano erupted was in 1984 and it lasted for 22 days, while its lava reached a distance of seven kilometers.

At this time, the lava flow is contained to the summit area and does not currently pose a threat to communities on the slopes, the USGS said on its website.
