Fuego on the morning of 12 Sep 2012
There has been an increase in volcanic activity. During 24 hours observation 11-12 Sep, there were 13 explosions, 11 weak and 2 moderate ones producing ash clouds reaching 400-600 m height and drifting 6 km to the W and NW. At night, strombolian activity with incandescent material was seen ejected to 75-100 m height. Weak avalanches traveled towards Taniluya and Ash canyons.
The lava flow towards the Taniluya canyon has increased from 100 to 150 m length.
