Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Sunday Jan 26, 2014 11:23 AM | BY: T
Activity at the volcano was characterized by weak to moderate strombolian explosions occurring at rates of 2-3 per hour. Abundant incandescent material is ejected and forms avalanches on the upper slopes.
Sometimes strong shock waves accompany the explosions and rattle windows and roofs of houses in the areas of Panimache, Morelia and others. Ash plumes rise to up to 700 m above the crater.
The recent lava flow seems to have stopped.
Friday, Jan 24, 2014
Activity at the volcano remains both explosive and effusive at fluctuating levels. After an increase during 22-23 Jan, it decreased yesterday, but seems to have picked up today again. ...
Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014
It appears that activity has increased over night. A strong continuous seismic signal (probably tremor) suggests an increase in lava effusion could be occurring. The next update from INSIVUMEH later today will give a better picture. ...
Friday, Jan 17, 2014
No changes in the explosive and effusive activity at the volcano occurred. ...
Wednesday, Jan 15, 2014
Activity remains elevated with abundant lava ejected to 75-125 m height during occasional moderately strong strombolian explosions that are followed by ash plumes rising up to about 700 m and drifting approx. 10 km to the S and SW. Rumblings like locomotive-engine sounds lasting 2-5 minutes accompany the degassing during the eruptions. The lava flow on the SE slope towards the Trinidad canyon reached 300 meters length this morning and produced small glowing avalanches.
Tuesday, Jan 14, 2014
Activity continues at moderate levels as during the past days. INSIVUMEH counted 13 moderate explosions with shock waves and ash plumes rising 300-800 m. The lava flow on the upper southern slope towards the Trinidad drainage was 300 m long this morning.
