Fuego volcano (Guatemala): eruption continues with lava flows

Scoria and ash plume from Fuego volcano tonight (image: INSIVUMEH)
Lava flow on the NW flank visible from space (image: Sentinel 2)
A satellite image from 13 June shows that the lava flow on the northwest flank
in the direction of Seca remains active, currently about 250 m long.
INSIVUMEH recorded weak to moderate strombolian-type explosions at regular intervals of 8 to 11 per hour that generated a grey ash plume which reached approx. 14,108-15,748 ft (4,300-4,700 m)
altitude. The plumes drifted towards the west and southwest direction.
Scoria is being ejected to an approximate height of 150 to 200 meters above the crater and caused weak to moderate avalanches of material.
Ashfall was reported in several areas downwind including Santa Sofía (12 km SW), Morelia (9 km SW), Panimaché I and II (8 km SW).Source: Instituto Nacional de Sismología, Vulcanología, Meteorología e Hidrología volcano activity update 15 June 2020

A satellite image from 8 June shows that incandescence
continues to be observed from the crater and caused weak to moderate avalanches of material
in the direction of Ceniza and Seca. ... read all
