Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Sunday Mar 17, 2013 17:12 PM | BY: T
Current 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.
Saturday, Mar 16, 2013
The rhythm of explosions remains similar. A total of 15 weak to moderate events with ash plumes rising 400-900 m were mentioned in INSIVUMEH's latest report for the period 14-15 March.
Thursday, Mar 14, 2013
An increase in explosions has been observed recently. INSIVUMEH reported 16 events, out of which 9 were characterized as "moderate" with shock waves that rattled windows and roofs, and incandescent tephra reaching 100-150 m height. ...
Wednesday, Mar 13, 2013
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. ...
Tuesday, Mar 12, 2013
Activity remains weak, with few (8 counted during 10-11 Mar) strombolian explosions producing light-gray ash plumes rising about 500 m.
Wednesday, Mar 06, 2013
Activity has calmed down to normal mild strombolian activity with incandescent bursts reaching 100 m above the crater and generating small glowing avalanches. No lava flows were reported active.
