Fuego volcano (Guatemala): 6th paroxysm in 2016

Another paroxysm (the 6th this year so far) started last night at the volcano. Intermittent strombolian explosions merged into lava fountaining reaching 400 m height and increased lava effusion has been feeding a lava flow that had reached 2 km length into the Las Lajas ravine (SE side).
In its bulletin this morning, INSIVUMEH reports strong tremor accompanying the rise of new magma. An ash plume has been rising to 5,500 m a.s.l. and drifting 25 km drifting to the S, SW and W, where ash fall is occurring. Strong shock waves from the explosions at the summit can be felt in several kilometer radius.
People in the area should avoid being near in or near river beds, particularly on the SE side, because of the likely occurrence of pyroclastic flows - glowing avalanches triggered by the partial collapse of the steep lava flow, which can reach several kilometers length and have been produced during most of the volcano's recent similar eruptive phases.

During the past week, activity at the volcano gradually increased into the 5th paroxysm in 2016, generating pulsating lava fountains, lava flows and possibly pyroclastic flows. ... [details]

The volcano's activity started to drop again to normal levels (intermittent small explosions) yesterday evening - the most recent paroxysm has now ended. [details]
Ash plume from Fuego yesterday
mercredi, mars 02, 2016
The activity of the volcano continued to increase into its 4th paroxysm (called "eruption" by local press) of 2016. Lava effusion rate increased gradually and continued to feed the lava flow on the eastern side into the Las Lajas ravine, where it reached approx 600 m length yesterday and started to produce small pyroclastic flows (by collapse of parts of the flow on the steep slope). ...

Lava flow in Fuego's Las Lajas ravine this morning
mardi, mars 01, 2016
Activity at the volcano is again increasing and a new lava flow started to travel down the upper eastern flank since yesterday evening. The previously (normal) mild strombolian activity at the summit vents is also increasing, and it seems that the volcano could be in for yet another paroxysm in the coming days. ... [details]
