Wed, 29 Aug 2012, 10:05The lava flow towards the Taniluya canyon is 200 m long and produces small incandescent rockfalls. A weak glow was observed from the crater at night. INISIVUMEH mentions no explosions.
Sat, 25 Aug 2012, 10:05A weak steam and gas plume is rising from the crater steadily to 200 meters height and moving west. Weak explosions were observed, generating gray columns up to 400 m high, and drifting about 10 km to the west and northwest. Read all

Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update: lava flow on east flank, occasional weak explosions, regular hissing-noise producing degassing
Sun, 19 Aug 2012, 09:42Explosive activity at Fuego has been diminishing a bit; INSIVUMEH only reported 4 weak explosions during the latest 24 hour summary, which produced ash plumes rising 400 m and drifting west. Read all
Thu, 16 Aug 2012, 10:05The volcano produces occasional strombolian explosions ejecting incandescent blocks to about 100 m and producing ash plumes of 100-400 m height. The lava flow is reported to be 250 m long in the latest update from the volcano observatory.

Mon, 13 Aug 2012, 10:05INSIVUMEH reports 8 weak explosions during the past day, generating ash columns of 200-500 m height. Read all
Sun, 12 Aug 2012, 10:05INSIVUMEH reports 8 weak explosions so far, and a slight advance of the lava flow towards the Taniluyá canyon, accompanied by numerous rock avalanches.

Wed, 8 Aug 2012, 10:05In a special bulletin on 3 August, INSIVUMEH reported a new phase of activity at Fuego, characterized by increased seismicity and degassing sounds. Incandescent tephra was ejected 200 m high and a lava flow traveled 500 m down the SW flank into the Taniluya drainage. Pyroclastic flows likely descended the SE and SW flanks. During 4-7 August explosions produced ash plumes that rose 200-400 m above the crater and drifted NW and W. Lava flows traveled 250-300 m down the Taniluyá drainage. Detached blocks from the lava-flow front traveled down the flanks to the vegetated area. Blocks also traveled down the Ceniza drainage (SSW). At night during 5-6 August explosions ejected incandescent tephra 100 m above the crater.

Fri, 27 Jul 2012, 09:03Weak but frequent explosions occur at Fuego volcano in Guatemala. On 25-26 July, they were producing gray ash columns reaching heights of 300 m to 600 m, and drifting up to 12 km west, northwest and southwest. Read all
Wed, 27 Jun 2012, 09:16Seismic activity recorded at Fuego volcano suggests another significant outburst occurred at that volcano late yesterday 27 June. INSIVUMEH reports 6 weak ash emissions and 3 strombolian explosions ejecting glowing bombs up to 150 m.

Wed, 20 Jun 2012, 10:05During 14-15 and 17-18 June explosions from Fuego produced ash plumes that rose 300-800 m above the crater and drifted WSW, E, and NE. Explosions generated rumbling sounds and shock waves detected in areas as far as 6 km away. Read all
Wed, 13 Jun 2012, 10:05INSIVUMEH reported that on 6 June lahars descended Fuego's El Jute (SE), Las Lajas (SE), Ceniza (SSW), Santa Teresa (S), and Taniluyá (SW) drainages, and destroyed roads in Yepocapa (8 km WNW). Read all
Fri, 8 Jun 2012, 08:35Fuego volcano in Guatemala remains at unusually high levels of activity with frequent explosions and several active lava flows on its upper flanks. Read all
Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update: strong strombolian activity, ash plumes up to 2 km height, occasional pyroclastic flows
Fri, 1 Jun 2012, 10:05During 22-23 May explosions from Fuego produced ash plumes that rose 700 m above the crater and drifted W and SW. Explosions produced shock waves and rumbling noises, and avalanches descended the SW flank towards the Ceniza drainage. Read all
