Fuego volcano (Guatemala): increasing activity

The activity at the volcano has again been increasing during the past days. The volcano observatory reported frequent moderate strombolian-type explosions ejecting glowing lava fragments to 250 m above the crater. Moderate to strong shock waves accompany the explosions.
Corresponding ash plumes have been rising to 1000 m height and drifting up to 12 km in westerly directions before dissipating. Light ash falls were noticed in the Panimache, Morelia and Santa Sofía villages.
If the volcano follows its rhythmic pattern, Fuego is probably heading towards a new paroxysmal phase in the near future.
