Fuego volcano (Guatemala): increasing activity

Saturday Jan 05, 2019 08:55 AM | BY: T

The volcano's activity has again been increasing over the past days and looks as if heading again towards one of its frequent paroxysms (phases of strongly increased lava emission, usually as fountains and lava flows from the summit crater).
INSIVUMEH reported yesterday that weak to moderate strombolian explosions were occurring at rates of 8-14 per hour, ejecting ash plumes that rose up to approx. 1 km high and drifted 10-15 km in various directions before dissipating.
A strong, constant glow is visible at the crater during night, suggesting that a lava flow is about to form. Avalanches of glowing material descend on the slopes of the crater, most pronounced in the SW and SE corridors (Seca, Ceniza, Trinidad and Las Lajas canyons).
Seismic activity shows constant rock-falls and volcanic tremor.
