Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Tuesday Aug 13, 2013 15:00 PM | BY: T
A slight increase of activity has occurred over the past dayss. The INSIVUMEH volcano observatory reported 11 strombolian explosions during the past 24 hrs interval with plumes rising up to about 600 m above the crater, and incandescent fragments ejected to 100 m above the crater, creating avalanches on the upper flanks.
Two lava flows remain active towards the Taniluya and Ceniza drainages on the southern slopes, with 300 and 400 m length, respectively.
Monday, Aug 05, 2013
The level of activity has remained low, characterized by weak strombolian activity and a small lava flow on the upper southern flank.
Friday, Jul 26, 2013
INSIVUMEH reports weak strombolian activity ejecting incandescent blocks to up to 100 m and producing small ash plumes about 200 m high, as well as continued lava effusion feeding a flow on the southern side of about 100 m length.
Thursday, Jul 25, 2013
Activity has remained low. INSIVUMEH reports only few and weak explosions (producing ash plumes up to 400 m height) and the active lava flow decreased to 50 m length.
Monday, Jul 22, 2013
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. ...
