Strombolian explosions remain relatively frequent (6-8 per hour) and some of them have been at the higher end of the typical normal activity scale, with ash plumes rising up to 1,200 m above the crater. Incandescent material falling back from the stronger explosions cause spectacular incandescent avalanches on the upper cone.

Moderately strong shock waves rattled windows in villages Panimache, Morelia, Sta. Sofía, and Panimache II. Loud degassing noises resembling jet-engines accompany the explosions.

Strombolian activity at the volcano has decreased a bit. Weak to moderate explosions occur at irregular intervals typically in the range of 1 hour, eject abundant incandescent lava to 100-150 m above the crater and generate avalanches on the upper slopes. The lava flow has stopped being active. ... read all

Strombolian activity remains intense, with ejections often reaching 150-200 m above the crater and producing abundant incandescent avalanches. Thanks to the new webcam, this activity can now be followed much better and in near-real time. This is an example time-lapse showing this morning's activity at the volcano: read all

Strombolian activity remains intense and can now be followed in near-real time on a new webcam. Explosions occur at rates of one every 30 minutes approx. and shower many incandescent material onto the upper slopes, where they generate avalanches up to 2 km length. No lava flows, however, is active at the moment. ... read all
