Fogo volcano (Cape Verde): eruption ended (?)

It seems that eruptive activity which had started on 23 Nov last year has finally stopped on 7 February, according to a post by Asociación Canaria de Volcanología on facebook.
It may be a bit too early to be sure to declare the eruption ended, because pauses in eruptive activity are not uncommon. On the other hand, activity had been showing a decreasing trend over the past weeks, and it would be no surprises if it actually did end now.

A new lava flow, smaller than the ones in the first weeks, but still well alimented, has been active in the Cha caldera over the past days and advanced slowly approx. 1500 m west-southwest passing between Monte Beco and Monte Saia cones.
