Strombolian activity and lava flow on Fuego yesterday (CONRED)
Another intense eruptive phase with strong explosions, lava fountaining and abundant lava flow activity is in progress at the volcano.
After increasing gradually over the past week, the new so-called paroxysm (the 12th such phase in 2016 according to INSIVUMEH) started yesterday morning and seems now to be at its peak. Strombolian-type explosions and/or pulsating lava fountains eject glowing lava to 400 m or more, generating abundant glowing avalanches on the upper cone, and are accompanied by shock waves that can be felt in up to 15 km distance.
Two lava flows of each about 2000 m length are descending the Las Lajas and Santa Teresa gullies on the southeastern flank.

Strong explosion at Fuego with incandescent avalanches this morning (INSIVUMEH webcam)
Strombolian-type explosions have increased in size and frequency during the past days. Many of the explosions ejected lava bombs to several hundred meters above the crater and caused spectacular incandescent avalanches on the upper slopes. Lees alle

Fuego volcano this morning with the remaining lava flow on the SE side (INSIVUMEH)
The 10th paroxysmal episode at the volcano in 2016 has come to an end and the volcano is now back to its normal state of intermittent mild to moderate strombolian explosions, ejecting incandescent material up to 100 m above the summit vents, at intervals of 1-2 hours on average. ... Lees alle

Lava fountaining at Fuego this morning (seen from Panimache, SW side)
The 9th paroxysmal eruption in 2016 is in progress at the volcano: starting yesterday, explosions have become stronger and more frequent. As the magma output rate increased strongly, the explosions have turned into pulsating lava fountains and a lava flow began to travel down the Las Lajas ravine on the SE flank, currently reaching about 1200-1500 m length. ...
