Current seismic signal of Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Current seismic signal of Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
The observatory reports no significant changes. About 30-35 small to moderate explosions occurred during 3-4 Dec, often with strong shock waves that rattled windows and roofs in up to 6 km distance. Ash plumes rose to about 4.2 km altitude (500 m height) and produced light ash falls in W and SW directions (Morelia, Panimache and other villages). At night, incandescent avalanches from the crater are visible.

The lava flow on the upper southern slope was no longer active this morning (while it was still 100 m long yesterday). The volcano is back to its typical mild explosive activity from the summit crater with strombolian bursts generating ash plumes up to about 600 m high, sometimes accompanied by loud shock waves.
