Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update: intermittent strombolian explosions, lava flow
Monday Aug 13, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T
INSIVUMEH reports 8 weak explosions during the past day, generating ash columns of 200-500 m height.
The lava flow in direction of Taniluya canyon has further advances and is now 300 m long and generates constant rock avalanches. Avalanches, too, have been observed towards the "Ash" (Ceniza) canyon.

INSIVUMEH reports 8 weak explosions so far, and a slight advance of the lava flow towards the Taniluyá canyon, accompanied by numerous rock avalanches. [meer...]
Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update: occasional weak explosions, active lava flow on east flank
Saturday, Aug 11, 2012
INSIVUMEH counted 5 weak strombolian eruptions during 9-10 Aug, which produced ash clouds not higher than 300 m. The lava flow towards the Barranca Taniluya is about 200 m long and produces avalanches of rock falls. ... [meer...]

The lava flow towards Barranca Taniluya is active and reaches 200 meters length, producing small avalanches. 3 explosions were counted by the observatory yesterday and reached heights around 400 m. [meer...]

The lava flow toward Taniluya Canyon remains active, but has become shorter (currently 150 m). INSIVUMEH lists 7 weak explosions in the report from 8 Aug, which produced ash columns rising 200 m, accompanied by rumbling noise and degassing lasting between 1 to 5 minutes. [meer...]

In a special bulletin on 3 August, INSIVUMEH reported a new phase of activity at Fuego, characterized by increased seismicity and degassing sounds. Incandescent tephra was ejected 200 m high and a lava flow traveled 500 m down the SW flank into the Taniluya drainage. Pyroclastic flows likely descended the SE and SW flanks. During 4-7 August explosions produced ash plumes that rose 200-400 m above the crater and drifted NW and W. Lava flows traveled 250-300 m down the Taniluyá drainage. Detached blocks from the lava-flow front traveled down the flanks to the vegetated area. Blocks also traveled down the Ceniza drainage (SSW). At night during 5-6 August explosions ejected incandescent tephra 100 m above the crater. [meer...]
