Fuego volcano (Guatemala): new lava flow
Thursday Apr 25, 2013 15:44 PM | BY: T
This morning, a new lava flow emerged from the crater and started to flow down the southern flank towards the Trinidad canyon, reaching a length of 300 meters. Explosions continue and produce ash plumes rising to 4-4.2 km altitude (300-500 m above the crater), generating weak to moderate rumbling avalanches. INSIVUMEH warns that this activity could increase towards a more intense eruptive phase in the coming days, with larger explosions, and possibly pyroclastic flows.
The other active volcanoes in Guatemala have not changed in their activity: Pacaya has weak strombolian activity, while the lava dome of Santiaguito, relatively calm these days, produces occasional weak explosions and weak avalanches from the active flows descending the flanks of the dome.
Monday, Apr 22, 2013
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. ...
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.
