Current seismic signal from Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Strombolian activity has been low with only 8 weak explosions recorded in the past 24 hours. Ash plumes rose about 3-400 m and incandescent material to 50 m above the crater. The lava flow was 200 m long.
During 30-31 Oct, there were 7 weak explosions with ash plumes up to 600 m high and incandescent material rising about 100 m. read all
There have been 4 weak explosions ejecting ash plumes of about 4-500 m height during 27-28 Oct. Rumblings were heard with degassing sounds similar to a turbine engine lasting about 1 minute. The lava flow towards the Ash Canyon was about 400 m long and produced incandescent blocks tumbling to the vegetation line. ... read all
Activity remains mainly effusive with the lava flow about 600 m long. Only few weak explosions occurred during 26-27 Oct. ... read all
Explosive activity is increasing in favor of effusive. Since yesterday, there have been 13 weak to moderate explosions with ash rising up to 1000 m. The lava flow towards the Ash Canyon is still active and now 400 m long. ... read all
The lava flow is decreasing and now only 600 m long. As effusive activity weakens, more explosions seem to occur. INSIVUMEH counted 6 weak events during 22-23 Oct with ash plumes rising about 500 m. ... read all
