Previous 12 hours period showing some increased activity between 23h-01h local time last night (INSIVUMEH)
INSIVUMEH observed 5 weak explosions ejecting ash plumes to 400 m above the crater, drifting west and northwest accompanied by rumbling and degassing sounds lasting between 1-5 minutes.
The lava flow towards the Taniluya canyon has reappeared and is now 100 m long. From its front, blocks detach and tumble down the steep slope. (INSIVUMEH)

Monday, Sep 10, 2012
4 weak explosions with ash plumes rising 300 m and some glowing material ejected to about 100 m were observed during the past observation period 8-9 Sep. Small avalanches of rocks towards the Tniluya and Ceniza Canyons were produced by material falling back from the explosions. Weak degassing sounds are heard. ... [meer...]

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. ...
