Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update

Sunday Mar 17, 2013 17:12 PM | BY: T

Current seismic signal from Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Current seismic signal from Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Yesterday's seismic signal from Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Yesterday's seismic signal from Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Compared to the previous days, activity has a bit decreased. INSIVUMEH reports few weak to moderate explosions, and small glowing avalanches from the crater towards the Ceniza drainage visible at night. A new lava flow is predicted to re-appear in the coming days.
The seismic signal showed relatively strong degassing tremor yesterday that decreased again. There are now discrete explosion signals mixed with some periods of weak volcanic tremor.
