Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update

Wednesday Mar 13, 2013 09:21 AM | BY: TOMPFEIFFER

Weak to moderate explosions accompanied by rumbling sounds audible in up to 6 km distance produce a fine ash plume drifting about 10 km to the west, and causing light ash fall in the areas of Panimache and Morelia.
INSIVUMEH mentions in its latest, unusually predictive daily report, that the sound of the explosions indicates that in the coming days a new lava flow will be visible again.
