Strombolian activity continues with OVFGO (Volcan de Fuego Observatory) reported 10 -15 explosions per hour over the past 24 hours. This generated grey ash plumes reaching 4500 to 4800 m.a.s.l (14763 to 15748 feet) and drifted W and SW approximately 25 km. There were reports of ashfall in the villages of Morelia, Santa Sofía, Palo Verde, El Porvenir, Panimache and San Pedro Yepocapa. The explosions generated moderate to strong rumbles, that could be heard 25 km away from the volcano. During poor light conditions, incandescent pulses, 300 and 600 m high were observed and also avalanches of ejecta, in the direction of the Taniluyá, Ceniza, Las Lajas, Trinidad, Seca and Honda canyon.
More on VolcanoDiscovery:
Definition of a volcano
: A volcano is the term for any place on the surface of the earth, where hot molten rock (magma) reaches the surface.
Bromo volcano photos
: Bromo is one of Indonesia's most visited volcanoes. It is the most active vent inside the huge Tengger caldera and erupts every few years.
Tours to active volcanoes
: Watching a volcanic eruption is one of the most impressive natural displays. We have a wide selection of tours to active volcanoes worldwide at different activity and difficulty levels.
Volcanoes & Cultures
: The contrast between unspoiled rain-forest, coconut palm beaches, primitive culture and moon-like landscapes surrounding lava-spitting volcanoes could not be bigger: join us on an expedition to the two most active volcanoes of Vanuatu: Ambrym and Yasur.
