Fuego volcano (Guatemala) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 26 June-2 July 2013 (Continuing Activity)
mer., 26 juin 2013, 06:00 06:00 AM | AUTEUR : VNINSIVUMEH reported that explosions from Fuego on 26 June generated shock waves and ash plumes that rose 400 m and drifted SW. On 27 June explosions produced ash plumes that rose 550 m and drifted 10 km. Shock waves vibrated structures in areas including Sangre de Cristo (8 km WSW), Panimaché (8 km SW), and Morelia (9 km SW).
Lahars descended the Las Lajas and El Jute drainages (SE), carrying blocks up to 1.5 m in diameter as well as tree trucks and branches.
On 28 June Vulcanian explosions produced shockwaves felt by local populations within 15 km. Explosions also generated ash plumes that rose 100-200 m and drifted W, and ejected incandescent tephra 150 m above the crater. Ashfall was reported in Panimaché, Morelia, and Sangre de Cristo.
A lava flow was active on the flank. During 29 June-2 July explosions generated ash plumes that rose 500-600 m and mostly drifted W and NW.

Activity both effusive and explosive has remained relatively unchanged and weak. Ash plumes rose 200-500 m above the crater and eject incandescent material to up to 100 m. The lava flow towards the Ceniza drainage was 250 m long this morning and produced occasional small avalanches. ... Read all

Activity at all currently active volcanoes in Guatemala has been weaker today. The small new lava flow at Fuego was not mentioned in INSIVUMEH's daily reports, and only few weak strombolian explosions were observed since yesterday. Read all
