Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Tuesday Oct 02, 2012 10:05 AM | BY: T
9 explosions occurred between 1-2 Oct with ash plumes of 700-1100 m height. Incandescent material was seen ejected to 200 m above the crater, generating avalanches up to 500 m long in the direction of the Santa Teresa valley.
Monday, Oct 01, 2012
14 explosions occurred since yesterday, including 5 moderate with ash plumes rising 500-1000 m. During 8 explosions, incandescent material was thrown to 200 m height and falling back triggered incandescent avalanches travelling down for 700 m. Light ash fall occurred in the areas of the observatory, Morelia and Santa Sofia. ...
Sunday, Sep 30, 2012
There have been 16 explosions between 28-29 Sep including 10 moderately strong ones with ash plumes rising 600-900 meters above the crater. Glowinb bombs were seen reaching 200 m height and generating avalanches around the crater. Fine ash fall was recorded at the observatory, in Morelia and Santa Sophia and Sangre de Christo. Rumblings and shock waves from the explosions could be head and felt in up to 15 km distance.

A large lahar traveled through the Ash Canyon (Barranco Ceniza) towards the community of Osnuna on 27 Sep between 14.30-15:50. More than 55 m of rainfall during a single hour (2.2 inches) remobilized still hot pyroclastic flow deposits from the 13 Sep eruption in the canyon including large tree fragments and boulders more than 1.5 meters in diameter. The lahar, strongly smelling of sulfur, cut the dirt road between San Andrés Osuna and Siquinalá. It was the first of these dimensions, but INSIVUMEH warns that more are possible.
Saturday, Sep 29, 2012
The number and strength of explosions has been further increasing. In its latest report, INSIVUMEH counted 18 eruptions during 27-28 Sep, out of which 10 were moderately sized and produced ash plume up to 1 km height, and fountains of incandescent material of up to 200 m height, which generated avalanches on the upper crater flanks. ...
Friday, Sep 28, 2012
Activity remains stable. Strombolian bursts reaching average heights of 75 - 150 meters above the crater, 14 explosions total observed between 26-27 Sep (9 weak and 5 moderate) with ash plumes of 500-800 m height above the crater.
