Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update: strombolian explosions, two lava flows

The lava flow towards barranca Taniluyá is 500 m long and a second flow towards the Cenizas canyon has a length of 600 m. Both produce constant avalanches of incandescent blocks tumbling down towards the vegetation line.
Weak constant locomotive-like degassing noises are noted. During the latest 24 hour observation period, 9 weak explosions were counted that produced light ash clouds rising 200 m and drifting west. In addition, pulsating strombolian activity ejecting glowing bombs to 100 m height were seen occurring at intervals of 10-15 minutes.

Thursday, Aug 16, 2012
The volcano produces occasional strombolian explosions ejecting incandescent blocks to about 100 m and producing ash plumes of 100-400 m height. The lava flow is reported to be 250 m long in the latest update from the volcano observatory. [meer...]
Current seismic signal from Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Tuesday, Aug 14, 2012
Activity has not changed much at Fuego. 13 weak to moderate strombolian explosions with ash plumes to 200 – 400 meters height, hissing gas venting at intervals of 1-8 minutes, and a 200 m active lava flow shedding constant rock avalanches were reported in the last daily update (note that the previous day, the lava flow was said to have been 300 m long - either the figures are a bit indicative, which is normal, or the flow has decreased a lot since yesterday). The seismogram shows lots of activity as usual. [meer...]
Monday, Aug 13, 2012
INSIVUMEH reports 8 weak explosions during the past day, generating ash columns of 200-500 m height. ... [meer...]
