Fuego volcano (Guatemala): surge in activity yesterday

Increased seismic activity at Fuego yesterday (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
An increase in activity with more frequent and stronger explosions took place yesterday, but the volcano has again been calmer today.
The volcano observatory reported that explosions with ash plumes of up to 800 m height occurred at rates of 3-4 per hour and produced a plume drifting for about 12 km W and NW. Ash fell on the villages of Morelia, Santa Sophia and Yepocapa.
The explosions were accompanied by moderate booms and shock waves that let roofs and windows of houses in a radius of 6 km vibrate.
Activity remains at typical average levels, characterized by intermittent, sometimes strong strombolian explosions that eject abundant incandescent material to 100-200 m above the crater. The bombs create avalanches on the upper slopes. Lees alle
No significant changes in activity have occurred at the volcano. The observatory reported 8 weak and one moderate strombolian-type explosion since yesterday. Lees alle
Strombolian activity continues at the volcano. Incandescent material is being ejected to up to 200 m height and ash plumes rise to up to 800 m. The recent, short-lived lava flow has disappeared. ... Lees alle
Yesterday's new lava flow was no longer active today. Explosive activity has been weak to moderate today. ... Lees alle
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. Lees alle

Raung volcano photos
: One of the largest and most active volcanoes in East Java, rarely-visited and relatively unknown Raung became (in)famous during its recent eruption in 2015 when its frequent ash plumes forced the repeated closure of Bali's airport.
Land of Volcanoes & History
: Armenia, a small country in the South Caucasus, has a long dramatic history and a rich cultural heritage. Despite its compact territory, it has much to offer its guests: fascinating mountain landscapes with snowy volcano peaks, beautiful gorges and cliffs, alpine meadows and subtropical forests, monasteries hidden in valleys, archaeological sites and picturesque villages.
