Fogo volcano news & eruption updates

Fogo volcano (Cape Verde): eruption slows down with short-lived phases of more vigorous activity

Mittwoch Jan 07, 2015 13:10 | VON: T

Activity continues, but overall the eruption has been decreasing and seems slowly to be coming to an end.
Still, short bursts of explosive and effusive activity occur from the vents occasionally, producing ash plumes and short-lived lava flows. Yesterday, such an increase resulted in an ash plume reaching 1.5 km and a new 50 m long lava flow near the vents. Minor ash fall occurred on the city of Sao Felipe.
The recently active western lava flow has apparently stopped by now, but during the past days managed to destroy the last remaining buildings in Ilhéu Losna.

It seems that after a short period of quietening down (9-14 December) the Fogo eruption has regained its strength. This confirms our earlier report of increased emission of sulphur dioxide thought to indicate the rise of a new magma batch. ... [mehr]
