Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update

16:31 PM | DOOR: T
Activity has been stable at average levels with intermittent weak to moderate strombolian-type explosions.
During the past 24 hours, ash plumes rose up to 800 m and drifted up to 12 km west and southwest. The stronger explosions were accompanied by shock waves. Incandescent material was seen ejected to approx. 100 m above the crater.
Explosive activity has been relatively high recently. Individual eruptions have been producing ash plumes that rose to up to 1 km and incandescent material was seen rising 150-200 m above the crater. Lees alle
An increase in activity with more frequent and stronger explosions took place yesterday, but the volcano has again been calmer today. ... Lees alle
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

Fuego volcano photos
: One of Central America's most active volcanoes, Fuego in Guatemala is in near-permanent explosive eruption with intermittent phases of increasing activity that generate lava fountains, lava flows and pyroclastic flows.
Photos from Armenia
: Armenia is a very photogenic country with a large variety of landscapes showing some very spectacular geology, century-old monasteries and castles, and much more.
