Fuego volcano (Guatemala): pyroclastic flow
Thursday May 19, 2016 21:42 PM | BY: T
The pyroclastic flow observed from Alotenango. Image: CONRED
A relatively large pyroclastic flow (avalanche of hot debris and ash) descended from the volcano yesterday (18 May) morning at around 10:30 local time.
The unusual aspect is that it occurred during a phase of currently low activity with no active lava flow or intense explosive activity (as during the paroxysms). There seemed not to have been any precursor signs either.
The most likely cause should be a collapse of accumulated, unstable material from previous eruptions on the upper slopes, something that would not be too unusual to happen.
