Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update

Friday Jul 05, 2013 14:28 PM | BY: T

No significant changes have occurred recently, but heavy rainfalls caused some lahars in the canyons Las Lajas and El Jute yesterday.
Volcanic activity consists of small to modest explosions with ash plumes up to about 600 m above the crater and drifting for 10 km or so. Some of the explosions produce shock waves that rattle windows and roofs in the villages of Sangre de Cristo, Panimaché, Morelia and others in the area.

Explosion from Fuego yesterday (INSIVUMEH)
Saturday, Jun 29, 2013
Explosions have become more violent, the latest special bulletin of INSIVUMEH indicates. Mild strombolian eruptions have turned into more powerful vulcanian-type explosions, which eject dense ash plumes rising to 800 m and produce numerous avalanches of blocks around the crater, especially on the southern flank. ...

Explosions have become more frequent and stronger. Dense ash plumes rose up to 600 m above the crater. Shock waves from the explosions made windows and roof vibrate in houses of Sangre de Cristo, Panimache, Morelia and others in the area. (INSIVUMEH) [more]
Thursday, Jun 20, 2013
Activity both effusive and explosive has remained relatively unchanged and weak. Ash plumes rose 200-500 m above the crater and eject incandescent material to up to 100 m. The lava flow towards the Ceniza drainage was 250 m long this morning and produced occasional small avalanches. [more]
Tuesday, Jun 18, 2013
Activity at all currently active volcanoes in Guatemala has been weaker today. The small new lava flow at Fuego was not mentioned in INSIVUMEH's daily reports, and only few weak strombolian explosions were observed since yesterday. ... [more]
