Incandescent lava rises from a spatter cone during an eruption November 4-18, 1975 in Dolomieu crater. Subsequently, from December 18, 1975 to April 6, 1976, explosive and effusive eruptions occurred from fissures at various locations on the SE flank. A January 18-30 lava flow originating from a SE-flank vent at 1320-m altitude traveled 5 km down to 70-m altitude and covered 250 m of the coastal highway.
