Fuego volcano news & eruption updates:
Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Thursday Aug 23, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T
An eruption of Fuego this afternoon
Current seismic signal from FG3 station (INSIVUMEH)
Activity has not changed since yesterday. Strombolian activity and two active lava flows about 400 m long are recorded.
Wednesday, Aug 22, 2012
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. ...
Tuesday, Aug 21, 2012
The lava flow towards the canyon Taniluyá has increased in length and now reaches 500 meters. From its front blocks detach and roll down to the edge of the vegetation. ...
Sunday, Aug 19, 2012
Explosive activity at Fuego has been diminishing a bit; INSIVUMEH only reported 4 weak explosions during the latest 24 hour summary, which produced ash plumes rising 400 m and drifting west. ...
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.
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.
