Fogo volcano (Cape Verde): lava flows continue to spread over farmland in Cha caldera

Lava effusion continues from the vents, while explosive activity there has more or less ended.
Lava is fed through tubes to active breakouts at different locations inside the Cha caldera. One area with active breakouts remains the former locations of Portela-Bangaeira villages, where by now almost all buildings have disappeared.
Another flow, particularly active in the past days, has been traveling to the west, towards the Cova Tina area, since early December. Meeting the caldera wall, it has now spit into two main lobes and advances over previous farmland. The most advanced front had a length of more than 2 km yesterday from the vents.
Gas emissions remain significant, suggesting the eruption could continue for a while. Since its beginning, it is estimated that more than 220,000 tons of sulfur dioxide have been released.
