16:55 PM | BY: T
After a short peak of activity, the volcano has been calmer today. INSIVUMEH reported weak explosions with ash plumes rising to 600-700 m above the crater, but does not mention any lava flow.
Yesterday evening's INSIVUMEH report suggests that activity at the volcano increased. 16 explosions were observed with ash plumes up to 1200 m height and a new lava flow on the upper southern flank headed towards the Ceniza canyon. read all
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. ... read all
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. read all
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. read all
No changes in the explosive and effusive activity at the volcano occurred. ... read all
