Fuego volcano (Guatemala): 12th paroxysmal episode ended, volcano returns to normal activity levels

The 12th paroxysmal eruptive phase of the volcano during 2015 has ended over night.
During its peak yesterday, lava fountaining from two summit vents fed 5 lava flows on the volcano's western, southern and eastern sides reaching lengths of 1.5-3 km. According to INSIVUMEH, this episode was the largest of the 12 eruptions in 2015 by lava output volume, but remarkably only generated smaller pyroclastic flows headed towards barranca Honda.

During the night, the volcano returned to its normal activity of intermittent strombolian-type explosions. INSIVUMEH reported them to be of small to moderate size, occurring at rates of approx. 3-5 on average per hour, with incandescent ejecta to 100-150 m above the crater and generating glowing avalanches. Ash plumes rose up to approx. 1000 m height. The lava flows were no longer, or only weakly alimented today and are now in the process of retreating and cooling:

Lava flows from Fuego volcano this morning
Monday, Nov 30, 2015
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: ...

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...]
Friday, Nov 06, 2015
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...]
Lava flows on Fuego volcano on 10 Oct 15 (INSIVUMEH)
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. ...
