The volcano's activity started to drop again to normal levels (intermittent small explosions) yesterday evening - the most recent paroxysm has now ended.
Wednesday, Mar 02, 2016
The activity of the volcano continued to increase into its 4th paroxysm (called "eruption" by local press) of 2016. Lava effusion rate increased gradually and continued to feed the lava flow on the eastern side into the Las Lajas ravine, where it reached approx 600 m length yesterday and started to produce small pyroclastic flows (by collapse of parts of the flow on the steep slope). ...
Tuesday, Mar 01, 2016
Activity at the volcano is again increasing and a new lava flow started to travel down the upper eastern flank since yesterday evening. The previously (normal) mild strombolian activity at the summit vents is also increasing, and it seems that the volcano could be in for yet another paroxysm in the coming days. ...

Volcanologist Edgar Barrios from INSIVUMEH's volcano observatory (OVF) kindly sent us these photos of the ongoing activity of Fuego volcano. ...

Latest quakes in Greece
: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
