Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update

Activity has been increasing. Continuous stronger tremor today suggests an increase in effusion rate today. In INSIVUMEH's report from yesterday, the new lava flow was 400 m long and produced small avalanches towards the Ash Canyon. The number of explosions rose to 17, producing gray ash plumes rising 600 m above the crater and drifting 8-10 km to the west and SW. They were accompanied by weak rumblings and locomotive-like degassing sounds. Incandescent material was seen rising 100-200 m at night.

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. read all
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. read all
Saturday, Apr 20, 2013
Activity has been low, with only few (less than 10) small to moderate explosions observed during most days. ... read all
