Both explosive and effusive activity have been low today. ...more
Wed, 30 Jan 2013, 16:56
Explosions have been becoming more frequent (now 12 during the past day vs a previous average of only 5). They produce light gray ash plumes drifting south and SE for about 5 km. The lava flow is still weakly active, but was only 150 m long this morning.
Tue, 29 Jan 2013, 15:40
Explosive activity continues to be on the increase in favor of effusive. During yesterday-today, INSIVUMEH counted 6 explosions that produced gray ash plumes rising up to 800 m and spread fine ash to up to 7 km to the west and southwest. ...more
Mon, 28 Jan 2013, 14:44
Yesterday seems to have been a more "explosive" day at the volcano. INSIVUMEH reports 9 with ash columns up to 500 m height and drifting 6 km west and SW. As a response to the more explosive nature, it seems that the rate of effusion feeding the flow has dropped. The flow decreased to only 200 m length this morning.
Sun, 27 Jan 2013, 16:47
There have been no explosions or ash emissions during the past 24 hours. AActivity remains low although the lava flow towards the Taniluya canyon is still active, 600 m long today. Incandescent blocks rolling from its front reach the edge of the vegetation.
Fri, 25 Jan 2013, 17:05
During 24-25 Jan, it was not possible to observe the activity, but rumblings generated by explosions were heard. The lava flow length this morning was 800 meters, in southwestern direction.
Wed, 23 Jan 2013, 11:05
Activity has remained mostly effusive; the lava flow increased to 900 length this morning. Only few weak explosions occurred since yesterday.
Tue, 22 Jan 2013, 11:05
Activity remains low and mainly effusive. The lava flow has increased to 800 m length. Only a few explosions occurred since yesterday with ash plumes rising about 300 m.
Mon, 21 Jan 2013, 09:23
Activity remains low and mostly effusive. There were 7 weak strombolian explosions during 19-20 Jan. The lava flow has increased to 600 m length on 20 Jan morning.
Tue, 15 Jan 2013, 11:05
Activity has been decreasing with fewer) explosions (only 2 weak ones during 14-15 Jan) and the lava flow reducing its length to 300 m.
