Pacaya volcano (Guatemala): increasing activity

This morning's seismic signal from Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
This morning's seismic signal from Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
Seismic and surface activity have increased during the past days, characterized by the appearance of continuous tremor and more frequent strombolian explosions, the latest special bulletin of INSIVUMEH notes.
This suggests a batch of fresh magma is currently rising. The Guatemalan scientists think that it is likely that strombolian activity will increase and perhaps a lava flow will appear on the flanks of the volcano in the coming days.
Already, the intra-crater cone has surpassed the rim of the crater by 4 meters and is now visible from outside.
