This morning's seismogram from Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
The strong steaming at Pacaya observed a few days ago has declined back to normal levels (about 100 m plume). Seismic activity remains slightly elevated with some quakes and tremor pulses apparent.

Current seismic signal (PGC station, INSIVUMEH)
Tuesday, Sep 11, 2012
The activity of the steam plume (which had been on average of 50-100 m height) has increased drastically, INSIVUMEH reports, and is now 600 m tall. A possibility is that this is related to increased groundwater infiltration. There are no sounds or rumblings. The seismic activity seems to be increased as well. [meer...]

A tremor signal is being recorded at Pacaya, but apart from fumaroles degassing, there is no visible activity. [meer...]
