Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Monday Apr 22, 2013 16:08 PM | BY: T
An increase in strombolian activity has been observed. Explosions eject incandescent material to 100-150 m height and creates avalanches when falling back onto the slopes.
Ash plumes from this activity have been rising 300-600 m.
Saturday, Apr 20, 2013
Activity has been low, with only few (less than 10) small to moderate explosions observed during most days.
Sunday, Apr 14, 2013
Activity has remained relatively low. Only few explosions were observed during yesterday, generating fine ash plumes rising up to about 800 m.
Wednesday, Apr 10, 2013
Activity has remained relatively low with only smaller strombolian explosions. At night, glowing bombs can be seen ejected to about 100 m above the crater.
Monday, Apr 08, 2013
Activity remains unchanged. Infrequent weak to moderate strombolian explosions (about 5-10 per day) generate ash plumes up to 1 km above the crater, causing small avalanches and light ash fall in nearby areas.
Saturday, Apr 06, 2013
Activity remains low, with only few strombolian explosions reported.
