Fuego vulkaan (Guatemala) activiteit update

Friday Jan 17, 2014 08:03 AM | DOOR: T

No changes in the explosive and effusive activity at the volcano occurred.
13 explosions were observed during the past 24 hours (11 weak and 2 moderate ones) with ash plumes rising up to 800 m above the crater and forming a plume 8 kilometers to the south and southwest. Incandescent material was seen rising to 75-125 m and locomotive-like degassing sounds, as well as shock waves were noted.
The lava flow on the upper SE flank remained moderately alimented and was 300 m long yesterday morning.

Fuego volcano this morning
Wednesday, Jan 15, 2014
Activity remains elevated with abundant lava ejected to 75-125 m height during occasional moderately strong strombolian explosions that are followed by ash plumes rising up to about 700 m and drifting approx. 10 km to the S and SW. Rumblings like locomotive-engine sounds lasting 2-5 minutes accompany the degassing during the eruptions. The lava flow on the SE slope towards the Trinidad canyon reached 300 meters length this morning and produced small glowing avalanches. [meer...]
Tuesday, Jan 14, 2014
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. [meer...]
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. ... [meer...]
Current seismic signal of Fuego (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
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. [meer...]
Seismic signal of Fuego today (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
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. [meer...]
