Map of recent earthquakes at Momotombo volcano
Seismic signal at Momotombo on Sunday (MOMN station, INETER)
A strong swarm of earthquakes occurred at shallow (1-10 km) depths beneath the southern flank of the volcano during Sunday-Monday. The largest quake was a magnitude 4.1 event.
While the quakes could be related to magmatic intrusions, they more likely represent aftershocks from April's twin M6 earthquakes.

INETER reported that the shore of Lake Managua retreated in some areas close to the epicenters of the recent earthquakes. Residents from the area Xiloá-Apoyeque, located about 2 km east of Comarca el Marañonal (at km 17 on the Xiloá highway) observed that the beach retreated for 16 meters on a strech of 500 m length. ...

Seismicity in the volcanic chain between Momotombo and Apoyeque volcanoes remains high. Dozends of shallow earthquakes in the magnitude 3-5 range have been occurring daily in a cluster SE of Momotombo and near Apoyeque. ...

A shallow magnitude 6 earthquake occurred last evening 15 km NE from Momotombo volcano, followed by ongoing numerous aftershocks in the area east of the volcano, as well as near Apoyeque volcano on the peninsula in Lake Managua to the SE. ...

A small seismic swarm occurred at the volcano today. A cluster of small earthquakes of magnitudes around 1 were detected on 6 Nov under the southern flank.
Freitag, Sep 06, 2013
The intense swarm of shallow earthquakes under the volcano's SE flank seems to have more or less ended. If it was caused by an intrusion of magma, it has (as in most cases) not lead to an eruption although a second swarm could restart at any time. ...

: A remote island in the Flores Sea of Indonesia formed by a single volcano that has been in strong strombolian eruption for years. We regularly lead expeditions to there where we camp several days to observe it.
Earthquakes near Volcanoes
: Our world-wide map continuously detects shallow earthquakes near volcanoes. These could be early signs of unrest and often precede eruptions.
Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
