Fuego volcano (Guatemala): new lava flow
Monday Jul 14, 2014 17:42 PM | DOOR: T
A new lava flow is active on the southern upper slope of the volcano. It had a length of 400 m this morning, INSIVUMEH reported. Glowing rock avalanches detach from its fronts and reach the vegetation line.
Explosive activity has been at average, low to moderate, levels with strombolian-type explosions producing ash plumes rising up to approx. 800 m above the summit.
Monday, Jul 07, 2014
The latest lava flow seems to have stopped. The volcano remained in its typical persistent type of activity, with intermittent mostly weak to moderate strombolian explosions. Incandescent material was ejected to 50-100 m and ash plumes rose up to 400 m above the summit. ...
Thursday, Jul 03, 2014
The new lava flow continues to slowly advance on the upper SE flank and reached a length of 200 m this morning. Strombolian-type eExplosions have been relatively frequent and weak to moderate in size, generating ash plumes up to 800 m tall.
Wednesday, Jul 02, 2014
Activity has increase since last night. A new lava flow started to issue from the summit vent and traveled onto the SE slope towards the Trinidad canyon. This morning, it had reached a length of 150 m. Explosions have become stronger as well, generating ash plumes of sometimes more than 1000 m in height.
Tuesday, Jul 01, 2014
No significant changes in activity have occurred at the volcano recently. It remains characterized by weak to moderate strombolian explosions every 1-2 hours on average, ejecting incandescent material to up to 150 m above the vent and producing ash plumes that rise 300-700 m.
Saturday, Jun 28, 2014
Activiteit heeft onlangs relatief laag. De vulkaan observatorium gemeld slechts zwak tot matig explosies met ash pluimen omhoog aan 500 m hoogte boven de krater.
