Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Monday Dec 16, 2013 22:27 PM | DOOR: T
Current seismic signal of Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Activity remains elevated but stable; the lava flow increased its length a bit to 600 m this morning, while explosions have become a bit weaker and occurred at rates of 2-3 per hour. Many of them produce shock waves that rattle windows and roofs of houses in nearby villages.
Sunday, Dec 15, 2013
An increase in activity was indicated by the volcano observatory today. The explosions (strombolian type) at the summit vent occur now at rates of 6-8 per hour and lava effusion increased. Currently, the lava flow is headed towards the Cenize canyon on the SW side. It is a possibility that this activity continues to build up towards another paroxysm, in which case the occurrence of pyroclastic flows (mainly by collapsing lava flow fronts) is a likely and dangerous scenario.
Tuesday, Dec 10, 2013
INSIVUMEH reports 7 explosions during the past day with ash plumes up to 700 m height.
Monday, Dec 09, 2013
Activity has increased since yesterday. The volcano observatory reports strombolian-type explosions that eject incandescent material to 100 m and ash plumes to 500 m height. Shock waves and incandescent avalanches accompany the explosions. A new (but so far weakly alimented) lava flow has started to descent from the summit crater.
Thursday, Dec 05, 2013
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.
Saturday, Nov 30, 2013
No significant changes in activity have occurred. The volcano produces small to moderate strombolian-type explosions with ash plumes rising up to about 800 m. The lava flows are no longer active.

Introduction to Plate Tectonics
: The Earth's upper, rigid layer is broken into several plates which are in constant motion to one another. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur as result of these plate boundaries.
