Activity remained similar to the previous days although some sources suggest a decrease in lava effusion, but an increase in explosions at the vents.
Several more houses have been burnt and destroyed by the advancing lava flows in Portela village.
A SO2 plume is drifting south from Fogo and can be seen on satellite imagery. It reaches an altitude of approx. 9,000 ft (3 km), and has the potential to create acid rain. Gas and dust concentrations in the southern part of the island have been high enough to cause health problems (breathing disorders, vomiting, dizziness, headaches etc).
Major problems are present for livestock feeding on grass now contaminated with ash. An enclosed area near Monte Verde provided by the government as temporary shelter for the animals has not been accepted by the animal owners, as there are no pastures there.
