Fogo volcano news & eruption updates

Fogo volcano (Cape Verde): eruption ended (?)

Tuesday Feb 10, 2015 17:16 PM | DOOR: T

It seems that eruptive activity which had started on 23 Nov last year has finally stopped on 7 February, according to a post by Asociación Canaria de Volcanología on facebook.
It may be a bit too early to be sure to declare the eruption ended, because pauses in eruptive activity are not uncommon. On the other hand, activity had been showing a decreasing trend over the past weeks, and it would be no surprises if it actually did end now.
