Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Tuesday Jan 14, 2014 16:50 PM | DOOR: T
Activity continues at moderate levels as during the past days. INSIVUMEH counted 13 moderate explosions with shock waves and ash plumes rising 300-800 m. The lava flow on the upper southern slope towards the Trinidad drainage was 300 m long this morning.
Monday, Jan 13, 2014
[Update] The volcano observatory observed an increase in explosions and a new lava flow. Shock waves from explosions could be felt in up to 15 km distance and they eject abundant lava onto the upper slopes. ...
Friday, Jan 10, 2014
Seismic activity has decreased at the volcano, suggesting that the latest surge in lava emission (both as larger-than-usual strombolian explosions and lava flow) is over.
Thursday, Jan 09, 2014
Activity remained elevated, but decreased a bit today, judging from the seismic signal. The volcano observatory reported moderate explosions with shock waves that ejected incandescent bombs to 200 m above the crater and left abundant incandescent avalanches on the upper crater. Associated ash plumes rose up to 1000 m and drifted 10 km before dissipating. The new lava flow towards the Ceniza drainage was 400 m long this morning.
Wednesday, Jan 08, 2014
Another surge of (mainly effusive) activity occurred yesterday. The observatory detected an increase in tremor and lava flow emission, as well as moderate to strong explosions with shock waves felt in up to 15 km distance, where they rattled roofs and windows in Panimache, Morelia and other areas to the eastern side of the volcano. ...
Sunday, Jan 05, 2014
Occasional strombolian explosions are relatively strong, producing incandescent ejections up to 100-150 m above the crater and causing incandescent avalanches around the crater. Ash plumes rose to up to 500 m. Shock waves can often be felt accompanying the explosions.
