Fuego volcano (Guatemala): 9th paroxysm in 2016 in progres

The 9th paroxysmal eruption in 2016 is in progress at the volcano: starting yesterday, explosions have become stronger and more frequent. As the magma output rate increased strongly, the explosions have turned into pulsating lava fountains and a lava flow began to travel down the Las Lajas ravine on the SE flank, currently reaching about 1200-1500 m length.
INSIVUMEH reports moderate to strong explosions, glowing avalanches in all directions and noisy rumblings similar to a locomotive train.
The FG3 seismic station records strong tremor and rockfall signals. An ash plume is rising to approx. 5000 m elevation and drifting SW and W, where ash fall is occurring in areas such as the volcano observatory in Panimache, Morelia, and El Porvenir villages.
A major risk is posed by the possible and likely occurrence of pyroclastic flows, especially towards the SE, from collapsing material of the rapidly accumulating lava flow and ejecta on the upper slopes of the volcano.

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). ...
