Fuego volcano (Guatemala) - volcano calms down and returns to normal activity

The Fuego volcano eruption has decreased to normal activity, INSIVUMEH reports last night. The seismic station FG3 shows signals typical for weak explosions that send fine ash clouds up to 500 meters above the crater.
The lava flows still remain active on the south and southwest flank of the volcano towards Ash Canyon and Taniluya Canyon, but have decreased to a length of 200 meters and might stop completely during the night.
The evacuated people who were staying in shelters at the school buildings in Santa Lucía Cotzumalguapa could return to their homes. CONRED informs that 18 tonnes of humanitarian help goods (food, water etc) were distributed to them.

Friday, Sep 14, 2012
The eruption of the volcano has undergone a change from explosive to mainly effusive over the past few hours, INSIVUMEH reports in the latest bulletin last night (22h00 local time). Instead of a large sustained ash column, there are now smaller pulsating ash emissions reaching 3-700 m height, but instead the volcano is producing large (for Fuego) lava flows between 900 and 1,000 meters long and 150 wide. The different activity is also leaving a different type of seismic signature and has remained stable over the past hours. ... [meer...]

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. ... [meer...]
