Fogo volcano news & eruption updates

Fogo volcano (Cape Verde): continuing lava flows

Monday Dec 22, 2014 17:40 PM | DOOR: T

The eruption continues its destructive work: the lava effusion from the vents remains at moderate intensity and feeds various active flows that spread in the Cha Caldera.
While the foremost front that had destroyed Portela and Bangaeira two weeks ago is no longer active, several lateral breakouts continue to spread in the caldera.
Whatever has so far been spared or only partially covered of buildings from the two villages, is being gradually covered by the flows.
At the Cova Tina area, flows continue to destroy farmland.
