Fuego volcano this morning
A new lava flow towards the Taniluya canyon (S side) started on 11 Nov and reached a length of 500 m this morning. Explosive activity at the summit has remained stable with occasional weak to moderate explosions ejecting ash plumes to up to 700 m height and producing sometimes loud shock waves.
Monday, Nov 04, 2013
The volcano observatory of INSIVUMEH reports an increase in activity today: A new lava flow started to descend on the southern flank towards the Trinidad canyon and currently has a length of 100 m. Another branch towards the Ceniza canyon is 50 m long. From both flow fronts, incandescent avalanches detach with run-out lengths of up to 500 m. ... [more]

Weak to moderate strombolian activity at the summit craters continues with little changes. Ash plumes rose to up to 500 m above the crater and drifted about 10 km in westerly directions, where light ash falls occurred in San Pedro Yepocapa and the villages of Sangre de Cristo, Morelia, Panimaché. The stronger explosions produce often loud rumblings and incandescent avalanches on the upper slopes. [more]
