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.
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]

Latest quakes in Greece
: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
From Stromboli to Etna tour
: A small group tour with a volcanologist to discover the active volcanoes in Sicily: spend 8 fantastic days in some of the most beautiful and interesting volcanic areas in the world. Watch Etna and Stromboli erupt... Last but not least, very nice accommodation and delicious food wait for you!
Earthquakes near Volcanoes
: Our world-wide map continuously detects shallow earthquakes near volcanoes. These could be early signs of unrest and often precede eruptions.
