Fuego volcano (Guatemala): weak activity, but strong lahars due to rainfall
Monday Jun 10, 2013 14:52 PM | DOOR: T
Activity remains relatively weak. During the past 24 hours, INSIVUMEH observed 6 small explosions with ash plumes up to 500 m height. At the moment, the main risk from Fuego is posed by lahars (mud flows).
Following heavy rainfall, unusually strong lahars with fronts of up to 5 meters tall travelled through the Ceniza ravine on 8 June, damaging the road that connects Siquinala to Rochela, San Andrés Osuna, and Ceilán. Deposits of 2-3 meters were left containing blocks of up to 3 meter in size.
Geologists who examined the drainages at the feet of the volcano yesterday found recent lahar deposits in the ravines and river valleys of Pantaleon, Ceniza, Las Lajas, Jute, Taniluya and Trinidad.
Friday, Jun 07, 2013
The level of activity has been generally very weak recently. During yesterday-today, only two small strombolian explosions were counted. ...
Tuesday, Jun 04, 2013
Activity remains weak, but due to heavy rainfall, INSIVUMEH warns of lahars through the drainages of the Ceniza, Las Lajas and El Jute canyons, as well the valleys Taniluyá and Santa Teresa.
Thursday, May 30, 2013
Activity remains weak. As it's rainy season, the volcano is mostly in clouds, but the seismogram and INSIVUMEH reports indicate occasional small explosions, some rockfalls and degassing events.
Saturday, May 25, 2013
Explosive activity has picked up a bit. INSIVUMEH reported strong degassing noises and 5 weak and 4 moderate explosions since yesterday, some of which produce plumes of about 1 km height and drifting 10 km to the W and NW. Light ash fall occurred in the areas of Panimache 1 and 2, Morelia, Santa Sofía, El porvenir and Yucales.
Thursday, May 23, 2013
Activity has remained stable during the past week. During yesterday, INSIVUMEH recorded 10 weak strombolian-type explosions that generated small ash plumes of up to 600 m height and drifting for 8-10 km before dissipating.
