Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Thursday Mar 21, 2013 15:46 PM | BY: T
Today's seismic signal from Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Activity has calmed down a bit again. INSIVUMEH reported 18 explosions (10 weak and 8 moderate) with ash plumes reaching 600-1200 m above the crater and drifting S and SE.
The lava flow that emerged on 19 March had split into two lobes towards the Ceniza and Taniluya canyons and advanced to a total length of 1500 m. It was still weakly active this morning and had produced weak to moderate avalanches.
Wednesday, Mar 20, 2013
The volcano has once again entered a (brief?) phase of stronger effusive and explosive activity. The Activity has increased since yesterday 14h20 local time, INSIVUMEH reports. A new lava flow has started to descend from the summit crater towards the Ceniza drainage and has reached a length of 1300 m. ...
Monday, Mar 18, 2013
The volcano has been calmer today, with only 10 mostly weak strombolian explosions registered, and maximum ash plume heights of 600 m. Incandescent tephra was seen ejected to 100 m above the crater and rolling down towards the Ceniza canyon. Strong degassing with turbine-like noises lasting up to 3 minutes were heard.
Sunday, Mar 17, 2013
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. ...
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. ...
