Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity summary (29 Aug - 4 Sep)

Thursday Sep 06, 2012 06:30 AM | DOOR: T

during 29-30 August lava flows from Fuego traveled 250 m down the Taniluyá drainage (SW), generating block avalanches that produced gray plumes and reached vegetated areas.
Seismicity increased on 3 September. During 3-4 September constant Strombolian explosions generated ash plumes that rose 900 m above the crater and drifted 8 km S and SW. The eruption was heard in areas 10 km away and vibrated structures in Panimaché (8 km SW), Morelia (8 km SW), and Santa Sofia (12 km SE). Lava was ejected 100 m high and spilled over the crater rim.
Lava flows traveled 3 km down the Taniluyá and the Ceniza (SSW) drainages, producing block avalanches that again reached vegetated areas. A third lava flow descended the Las Lajas drainage (SE). Pyroclastic flows traveled SE. Ash plumes drifted 10-12 km S and SW, and produced ashfall in Panimaché, Morelia, Santa Lucía, Cotzumalguapa, Tierra Linda, and Popoya.

Current seismic signal from Fuego (INSIVUMEH)
Monday, Sep 03, 2012
Fuego volcano's activity has increased. Seismic recordings monitor rising tremor and there are (for now weak) constant explosions ejecting ash to 900 meters above the crater forming plumes of 8 kilometers in two directions ,one south and one to the southwest. This activity generates constant moderate degassing sounds, audible to 10 kilometers distance. Reports of OVFGO Volcano Observatory indicate incandescent material being ejected to 100 m height. ...

The lava flow towards the Taniluya canyon is 200 m long and produces small incandescent rockfalls. A weak glow was observed from the crater at night. INISIVUMEH mentions no explosions. [meer...]
Saturday, Aug 25, 2012
A weak steam and gas plume is rising from the crater steadily to 200 meters height and moving west. Weak explosions were observed, generating gray columns up to 400 m high, and drifting about 10 km to the west and northwest. ... [meer...]
