Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Thursday Jan 10, 2013 11:05 AM | BY: T
No significant changes in activity have occurred. Weak and infrequent strombolian explosions accompany the slow extrusion of the lava flow, 600 m long on 10 Jan morning.
Thursday, Jan 10, 2013
Weak strombolian activity can be seen at night. Ash plumes from these explosions rise about 400 m above the crater. The lava flow on the SE flank remains active and had a length of 800 m yesterday morning.
Thursday, Jan 03, 2013
8 weak explosions with ash clouds reaching 3-400 m above the crater, and accompanied by faint rumblings were observed during 2-3 Jan. The lava flow toward Taniluya canyon decreased to a length of only 300 meters.
Tuesday, Jan 01, 2013
Activity has remained stable and mainly effusive. There are few weak infrequent strombolian explosions (8 during 31 Dec-1 Jan) generating small gray ash plumes rising up to 400 m, and the extrusion of the lava flow towards Taniluya canyon, 500 m long yesterday morning.
Sunday, Dec 30, 2012
Activity has remained unchanged with weak strombolian explosions (11 counted during 28-29 Dec) producing small ash plumes up to about 500 m high, and the continuing lava flow, about 500 m long on the upper southern slope.
Tuesday, Dec 25, 2012
Activity has remained dominantly effusive. The lava flow on the southern slope has increased its length to 500 m on 24 Dec morning. Mild strombolian activity with infrequent (a few per day) small explosions have continued at the volcano. ...
