Fuego volcano (Guatemala) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 23 August-29 August 2017 (Continuing Activity)
INSIVUMEH reported that on 25 August lahars descended the Pantaleón, Cenizas, El Jute, and Las Lajas drainages on Fuego's W, SSW, and SE flanks. The lahar in the Pantaleón river (fed by the Santa Teresa and El Mineral rivers) was 35 m wide, 2.5-3 m deep, and carried trees and blocks more than 2-3 m in diameter. The Cenizas river lahar was about 25 m wide, 3 m deep, and carried blocks up to 2 m in diameter.

The lahars in El Jute and Las Lajas drainages were 20 m wide, 1.5 m deep, and carried tree debris and blocks up to 2 m in diameter. Explosions during 26-29 August generated ash plumes that rose as high as 950 m above the crater and drifted 7-12 km SW, W, and NW. Incandescent material was ejected 100-200 m above the crater rim, and caused avalanches of material around the crater area.
Explosions were audible within a 20-km radius, and shock waves vibrated local structures. Ash fell in areas downwind including Panimache I and II, Morelia, Finca Palo verde, Sangre de Cristo, and El Porvenir. On 29 August lahars 10 m wide and 1.5 m deep descended the Santa Teresa and El Mineral drainages, carrying tree debris and blocks up to 2 m in diameter.
