Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Monday Jul 22, 2013 03:06 AM | BY: T
Seismic signal last night from Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
There are no significant changes in activity, which remains weak (8 small to moderate explosions during 20-21 July) and mainly effusive; the lava flow on the southern side was about 300 m long and produced small avalanches of blocks towards the Taniluya canyon.
Friday, Jul 19, 2013
The lava flow on the southern side has remained active and was about 250 m long this morning, producing near-constant rockfalls towards the Taniluya canyon. ...
Sunday, Jul 14, 2013
Explosive activity has been weak (only few and small strombolian explosions with ash plumes up to 200-400 m height and incandescent material rising 100 m), but another lava flow has started on the upper southern flank. On 12 July morning, it was about 150 m long towards the Taniluyá canyon.
Tuesday, Jul 09, 2013
Activity remains generally stable with infrequent wek to moderate explosions, sometimes accompanied by shock waves felt in nearby villages. Plumes of fine ash rose to 600-800 m height above the crater and drifted for about 10 km before being dispersed, INSIVUMEH reported this morning in its daily update.
Friday, Jul 05, 2013
No significant changes have occurred recently, but heavy rainfalls caused some lahars in the canyons Las Lajas and El Jute yesterday. ...

The volcano has calmed down during the past day. Only 5 relatively weak explosions were recorded. Seismic activity has decreased as well.
More on VolcanoDiscovery:
: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
Gorely volcano photos
: Gorely is a young and very active shield volcano in southern Kamchatka. It is one of Kamchatka's easiest volcanoes to climb and offers stunning views into vast craters and the surrounding landscape.
Photos from Greece
: We have traveled and studied extensively in Greece, in particular on its active volcanic areas such as Santorini, Nisyros, Milos, Methana.
Best tours to see lava
: Visiting an erupting volcano is an unforgettable experience. If you're particularly looking to see "Red Hot Lava", these are among the best places to go to.
