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.
