Seismic signal this morning at Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
Seismic signal this morning at Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
Current seismic signal with continuous tremor
Current seismic signal with continuous tremor
An increase in seismic activity has occurred gradually over the past 24 hours. Individual explosion signals have merged into strong continuous tremor. This could indicate another paroxysm with continuous explosions / lava fountaining / lava flow emission in the progress, but CONRED / INSIVUMEH have not (yet) updated on this possible increase in activity.
During the past days, the volcano had been producing frequent strombolian eruptions with jets of incandescent lava reaching 50-100 m above the Mackenney crater.

Current seismic recording Pacaya volcano (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
Strombolian activity has been gradually increasing during the past days. Frequent explosions, at intervals of about 5 minutes, eject glowing material to 50-100 m above the Mackenney crater, and ash plumes drift up to 3 km to the W and SW. The activity is visible from the capital Guatemala city. INSIVUMEH thinks that the appearance of a new lava flow is likely to occur soon. ... Lees alle
