Pacaya volcano (Guatemala), activity update: lava flows and strong strombolian eruptions

Following the violent eruption on 28 May, a large 90-m-wide lava flow was emitted on 29 May that traveled SSE at an estimated rate of 100 m per hour and burned three houses on the Pacaya Grande ranch. The lava was within 450 m of some other properties including El Chupadero, located 2-2.5 km S of the crater, and disrupted an access road from El Caracol (3 km SW) and Los Pocitos (5.5 km S).
Explosions ejected ash 300-500 m above the crater.
INSIVUMEH reported on 1 June that the Strombolian activity continued. Explosions ejected ash as high as 700 m above the crater and ash plumes drifted NW. Two lava flows were seen traveling SW and SE.
