Momotombo volcano (Nicaragua): small explosions yesterday

Two relatively small explosions occurred yesterday at the volcano, one at around 02:20 and another at 11:15 local time.
They ejected incandescent material onto the upper flank of the cone and produced ash plumes that quickly dissipated into westerly directions. According to INETER, the activity was accompanied by a threefold increase in volcanic tremor and preceded by a significant increase in SO2 output from approx. 600 to over 1000 tons per day between 9 and 11 February.
Most likely, the eruptions were the result of a new magma batch rising inside the volcano and more explosions could follow in the near future.

As this morning's webcam images already had suggested, a new fully-blown magmatic eruption is now in progress at the volcano: pulsating lava fountains (or continuous, strong strombolian activity) feed a new lava flow that slowly descends on the NE side of the volcano, and a dense ash plume that rises approx. 2-2.5 km above the volcano and drifts NW. ...
