Volcanoes Today, 23 Nov 2014: Fogo volcano

Sunday Nov 23, 2014 18:00 PM |
Fogo (Cape Verde): A new eruption started at the volcano this morning around 10:00 local time. The aviation alert was raised to red due to possible ash emissions that could harm aircraft in the area.
Not much detail about the eruption is so far available, but a strong thermal anomaly was detected on satellite data, suggesting the presence of lava at the vent, perhaps in the form of lava fountains.

Bardarbunga (Iceland): Winter conditions continue to make it difficult to study the fissure eruption at Holuhraun.

The two images accompanying this update are snapshots from a stunning video recently shot by Jon Gustafson. ... [more]
