The NE crater ash was mentioned in the report from the now up & running smithsonian institution GVP website.
Currently no report on the type of ash from the NE crater plume (may have been phreatic or a deep degassing jet through a narrow bore hole,(a thin section view of the shards would provid the answer).
New SE crater now looks rather large (especially in the pic), no idea of the current height of the SE crater cone.
Weather @ the time was excellent...
Have a nice day: Ag
