Volcano news: Pacaya (Guatemala)
Pacaya volcano (Guatemala): increasing activity
Thursday Jul 25, 2013 14:14 PM | DOOR: T
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.
Monday, Jul 22, 2013
Activity has dropped at bit apparently. Although the seismic signal suggests that small strombolian-type explosions still seem to continue, INSIVUMEH reported only degassing and no sounds of explosions heard.
Friday, Jul 19, 2013
Mild strombolian activity from the Mackenney crater continues.
Tuesday, Jul 09, 2013
Mild strombolian activity persists at the volcano's crater. Some explosions can be heard in up to 5 km distance.
Friday, Jul 05, 2013
Weak to moderate strombolian activity from the Mackenney crater continues. The small intracater cone has grown to about 25 m height, INSIVUMEH reported. Some explosions can be heard in up to 5 km distance.
Monday, Jul 01, 2013
INSIVUMEH reports no explosions heard or seen, but the seismic signal suggests that small explosive activity continues.
