Fuego volcano (Guatemala): 4th paroxysm in 2017 ended

During the past days, another paroxysm (the 4th in 2017 so far) occurred. According to INSIVUMEH, it was one of the most energetic eruptive phases of the volcano inthe past 5 years and classified as VEI 3 (vulcanian eruption) on the logarithmic volcanic explosivity scale.
Its peak phase(4-5 May) lasted approx. 24 hours, when near-continuous pulsating lava fountains generated multiple lava flows into the Las Lajas and Santa Teresa drainages, as well as multiple pyroclastic flows onto the SW, S and SE flanks.
As of now, the volcano has returned to mild to moderate intermittent strombolian activity (its typical state).

Summary of the eruption (Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report 3-9 May 2017):
INSIVUMEH reported that a new phase of activity (the 4th of the year) at Fuego began on 5 May and was the strongest activity recorded since 2012. Strong explosions, sometimes producing shock waves, generated dense ash plumes that rose 1.3 km above the crater and drifted more than 50 km S, SW, and W.
Ashfall was reported in many areas downwind, including San Pedro Yepocapa (8 km N), Morelia (9 km SW), Santa Sofía (12 km SW), El Porvenir (8 km ENE), finca Palo Verde, Santa Lucia Cotzumalguapa (23 km SW), Siquinala, San Andrés Osuna, Chuchu, and La Reunión.
Lava flows traveled 2 km down the Santa Teresa (W) drainage and 3 km down the Las Lajas drainage.
Pyroclastic flows descended the Trinidad (S), Las Lajas (SE), Ceniza (S), and Santa Teresa drainages. Residents of Sangre de Cristo (8 km WSW) were evacuated. Explosions were not reported that next day and the lava flows may have stopped advancing.
According to a news article, about 300 people had been evacuated from Panimache (8 km SW). During 7-8 May lower-energy explosions generated ash plumes that rose as high as 750 m above the crater and drifted 8-20 km W and SW. Gases were observed rising from pyroclastic flow deposits in the ravines.
