Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update: lava flow and weak explosions
Wednesday Oct 24, 2012 08:08 AM | DOOR: T
The lava flow is decreasing and now only 600 m long. As effusive activity weakens, more explosions seem to occur. INSIVUMEH counted 6 weak events during 22-23 Oct with ash plumes rising about 500 m.
Monday, Oct 22, 2012
8 weak explosions were recorded during 21-22 Oct. The active lava flow is 800 m long.
Thursday, Oct 18, 2012
No explosions were observed since yesterday, but the lava flow towards the Ash Canyon has now a length of 800 meters and blocks tumble down to the vegetation line.
Wednesday, Oct 17, 2012
Only weak explosions were observed during the past days at Fuego whose activity remains mostly effusive, feeding the active lava flow towards the Ash Canyon now 600 m long. Incandescent blocks detach from its front and roll to the vegetation.
Monday, Oct 15, 2012
Only 3 weak explosions occurred during 14-15 Oct with ash plumes rising 400 m, but the lava flow towards the Ash Canyon is now 600 m long according to the latest update of INSIVUMEH.
Sunday, Oct 14, 2012
There have been 5 weak explosions weak with ash clouds up to 400 height. The lava flow is now 400 to 500 m long and headed towards the Ash Canyon. From its flanks, incandescent blocks detach and reach the vegetation. Weak locomotive like sounds were heard.
