Fuego volcano news & eruption updates:

Fuego volcano (Guatemala): strong eruptive phase with lava flows over 2 km length, risk of pyroclastic flows

Lava flows from Fuego volcano this morning
Lava flows from Fuego volcano this morning
The activity at the volcano has been increasing since a few days ago. The effusion rate has risen significantly. Pulsating lava fountaining and strong, detonating strombolian explosions several hundred meters high from the summit vents are currently feeding at least 3 relatively large lava flows descending on the western and southern flanks:

- through the Trinidad drainage (S): approx. 2400 m long,
- through the Santa Teresa drainage (W): approx. 2000 m long,
- through Las Lajas ravine (SW):approx. 1300 m long.

These steeply and rapidly emplaced lava flows are very likely to generate pyroclastic flows (by partial collapses), in a similar way as occurred during the last paroxysm on 10 Nov only 3 weeks ago, threatening a vast area around the southern and western feet of the volcano, in particular valleys.

The strong eruptive phase (paroxysm) at the volcano ended over night and activity returned to normal levels of intermittent strombolian explosions. ... [meer...]

Tuesday, Nov 10, 2015
Another paroxysm - a peak in activity with lava fountains and lava flows - occurred at the volcano last night, the 10th such event this year. It seems that activity with increasing effusion rate began during the night Sunday-Monday, as the volcano observatory reported a new lava flow on the southern flank the next morning. It was headed towards the Las Lajas and El Jute drainages and had reached 1500 m length by Monday morning. ... [meer...]

The volcano has been at average activity levels during the past days, with intermittent weak to moderate, sometimes stronger strombolian-type explosions (every 1-3 hours on average), sometimes accompanied by shock waves. ... [meer...]

Friday, Oct 16, 2015
Another paroxysm, the 9th this year, occurred at the volcano during 10-13 Oct. Strongly increased lava effusion and violent strombolian activity produced intermittent lava fountaining up to 300 m high, and re-alimented the two lava flows on the southern and western slopes, which reached 1000 and 1300 m length. ...

Activity has calmed down. Explosions have been only of smaller size, but the lava flows on the upper southern and western flanks remained weakly active last evening. [meer...]
