Volcano news: Pacaya (Guatemala)
Pacaya volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Friday Jun 07, 2013 16:23 PM | DOOR: T
An emission of fine ash occurred this morning at 04:00 local time, but INSIVUMEH reports no other (e.g. strombolian) activity but degassing from the crater at the moment.
Tuesday, Jun 04, 2013
Activity has decreased and strombolian activity has dropped or even stopped for the time being. INSIVUMEH reported only degassing sounds for yesterday.
Friday, May 31, 2013
As the seismic signal suggested, a strong increase in activity occurred yesterday evening and culminated in the effusion of a lava flow from the Mackenney crater which lasted about 2 hours. ...
Thursday, May 30, 2013
The volcano has been mostly hidden in clouds, but strombolian (and perhaps effusive) activity continues as can be seen from glow at night and noises from explosions and degassing. A strong increase of seismic activity seems to have started a few hours ago as suggested by the current seismogram.
Saturday, May 25, 2013
Strombolian activity from the Mackenney is gradually intensifying and continues to fill the crater. Explosions reach 75 m height above the vents and some of the ejecta fall outside the crater and produce audible booms. This activity and volcanic tremor is visible on the seismic recording as well.
Thursday, May 23, 2013
Strombolian activity persists in the Mackenney crater, which is slowly filling with new lava. The activity can be heard from San Francisco de Sales and ejects incandescent bombs to about 40 m height. As the crater continues to fill up, INSIVUMEH thinks that during the coming days or weeks, new lava flows are likely to appear.
