Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update

Monday Nov 12, 2012 07:32 AM | BY: T

3 weak strombolian explosions were counted during 11-12 Nov (6 during 10-11 Nov) and the lava flow remained active with a length of about 350-400 m.
Previous news
Sunday, Nov 11, 2012
During 9-10 Nov, Fuego was unusually quiet with only 3 weak explosions. The latest INSIVUMEH report also mentions the length of the lava flow at only 200 m, which would suggest that effusion rate has dropped a lot (temporarily). [more]
Saturday, Nov 10, 2012
It appears that the lava erupted from the crater has been becoming more fluid and explosions less ashy, but richer in incandescent material. ... [more]
Thursday, Nov 08, 2012
13 weak explosions occurred since yesterday producing ash plumes rising about 500 m and ejecting incandescent material to up to 100 m above the crater, and falling back onto the upper outer flanks. ... [more]
Wednesday, Nov 07, 2012
Weak strombolian activity continues and the lava flow, 600 m long on 6 Nov, is still being alimentated. During 5-6 Nov, INSIVUMEH counted 6 explosions with ash plumes rising a few 100 m and observed incandscent material ejected to up to about 100 m height. [more]
Monday, Nov 05, 2012
Activity continues dominated by the effusion of lava. The lava flow toward Ash Canyon extends 800 meters and blocks detaching from its front roll down to the edge of the vegetation. ... [more]
