Fuego volcano news & eruption updates:

Fuego volcano (Guatemala): increased lava effusion

Sunday Mar 03, 2013 16:15 PM | BY: T

Current seismic signal from Fire (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Current seismic signal from Fire (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
During the last hours, the lava effusion has significantly increased and the active lava flow towards the canyon Trinidad has reached 1,000 meters in length. At the summit, strombolian-type explosions are continuous and produce constant degassing sounds.
INSIVUMEH warns in its special bulletin of the possibility of another larger eruption, that could include stronger explosions and pyroclastic flows generated by explosions and collapse of parts of the lava flow on the steep slope, in a similar way as during the strong eruption in mid February, only about 2 1/2 weeks ago.
Ash plumes are most likely to affect areas to the S and SW. Civil aviation should take precautions with air traffic as ash columns could be expelled more than 1500 meters above the crater and move upwind at greater distances in the course such activity.

Current seismic signal from Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Friday, Mar 01, 2013
A new lava flow has appeared from the summit crater of Fuego volcano and is traveling towards Trinidad canyon and about 300 m long. Weak explosions occur from time to time as well, with plumes rising only a few 100 meters. The current seismic signal shows an increase of activity over the past hours. [more]
Wednesday, Feb 27, 2013
Weak to moderate strombolian explosions with ash plumes rising about 600 m and drifting for 10 km were reported today. [more]
Tuesday, Feb 26, 2013
Mild strombolian activity continues, with incandescent pulses of about 100 m heigh and ash plumes rising up to about 700 m above the crater. [more]
Friday, Feb 22, 2013
INSIVUMEH reported weak strombolian activity, but no active lava flows. [more]
Wednesday, Feb 20, 2013
The volcano is back to its typical mild, but continuous activity. INSIVUMEH reports 6 weak strombolian explosions with ash plumes rising about 400 m and incandescent bombs ejected to 100-150 m height above the crater. [more]
