Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Saturday Nov 30, 2013 08:18 AM | BY: T
Small eruption from Fuego yesterday morning
No significant changes in activity have occurred. The volcano produces small to moderate strombolian-type explosions with ash plumes rising up to about 800 m. The lava flows are no longer active.
Tuesday, Nov 26, 2013
The lava flow on the upper southern slope was no longer active this morning (while it was still 100 m long yesterday). The volcano is back to its typical mild explosive activity from the summit crater with strombolian bursts generating ash plumes up to about 600 m high, sometimes accompanied by loud shock waves. [more]
Sunday, Nov 24, 2013
Activity has returned to normal levels, with weak explosions (ash plumes of 500-600 m height drifting W and NW). The lava flow towards the Ceniza canyon remains weakly alimented and had a length of 200 m yesterday. [more]
Friday, Nov 22, 2013
A surge in activity occurred yesterday, with drastically increased numbers of strombolian explosions and lava effusions. The explosions generated ash plumes rising about 500 m and caused moderate ash falls in areas to the south and SW, mainly in the village of Sangre de Cristo. ...
Wednesday, Nov 20, 2013
Two lava flows are active on the upper slopes of the volcano at the moment, to the Taniluya (south) and Ceniza canyon (SE). The effusive activity started on 11 Nov and increased on 18 November, reaching a length of 600 m. Constant avalanches detach from the flow fronts. ... [more]
Wednesday, Nov 13, 2013
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. [more]
