Nowadays, the volcano is among the most active in the world. For 215 years there have been 21 eruptions in total. The latest eruption occurred on the 1st of January, 1996. As a result of the eruption, the lake at the foot of the volcano started boiling. Since then, two dozen years have passed, but the series of eruption have not stopped completely.
