The volcano had a new explosion from its crater lake last Wednesday 8 March.

Aerial image of the crater lake of Rincon de la Vieja volcano (image: OVSICORI-UNA)
The volcano increased its activity. Since 17 Sep, phreatic explosions have regularly occurred from the main crater which contains an acid lake. Although none was observed directly, at least 6 explosions could be identified by seismic signals. An aerial survey yesterday showed no fresh deposits, which suggests that the eruptions were rather small and did not eject material beyond the lake. ...plus
