Fuego volcano news & eruption update

Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update

Saturday Nov 10, 2012 08:34 AM | BY: T

It appears that the lava erupted from the crater has been becoming more fluid and explosions less ashy, but richer in incandescent material.
During 8-9 Nov, there were 15 strombolian explosions with ash plumes of 3-500 m height and incandescent bombs being ejected to 150-200 m height, lasting 25-40 seconds, and generating avalanches on the upper outer crater flanks.
The lava flow toward Ash Canyon was 500 meters long and produced block avalanches that reached the vegetation line.
