Volcano news: Pacaya (Guatemala)
Pacaya volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Monday Jul 01, 2013 16:05 PM | DOOR: T
This morning's seismic signal from Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
INSIVUMEH reports no explosions heard or seen, but the seismic signal suggests that small explosive activity continues.
Thursday, Jun 27, 2013
Mild, typical strombolian activity has established itself inside the Mackenney crater. "Dry" (not containing much ash) explosions occur frequently and eject incandescent scoria to about 25 m height above the crater and an intra-crater cone, now about 15 m high, is being formed inside the crater. Some of the explosions can be heard in up to 5 km distance. At night, glow can be seen from the crater.
Thursday, Jun 20, 2013
Weak strombolian activity has resumed, with small explosions about every 10 minutes that produce small ash puffs. Some of the explosions are audible, but most are only inferred from the seismic signal. Volcanic tremor accompanies this process.
Monday, Jun 17, 2013
Eruptive activity has resumed. Weak incandescence and explosions could be seen and heard during the past days. Today, no direct observations were reported, but volcanic tremor increased significantly during today, which could indicate some more vigorous activity soon.
Thursday, Jun 13, 2013
The volcano has been quiet yesterday. No explosions occurred. INSIVUMEH reports moderate steaming only.
Monday, Jun 10, 2013
Weak explosive activity has apparently resumed, INSIVUMEH reported.
