Volcanic activity worldwide 19 Jun 2013: Popocatépetl, Tolbachik

Wednesday Jun 19, 2013 17:04 PM |

Eruption from Popocatepétl this morning
Eruption from Popocatepétl this morning
Tolbachik (Kamchatka): (18 Jun) KVERT reports no changes in the ongoing eruption of the volcano. Tremor levels remain stable and lava continues to be effused from the southern fissure vent.
The other currently active volcanoes in Kamchatka have not shown significant variations either. Moderate seismic activity was reported by KVERT for Shiveluch, Kizimen (dome extrusion) and Gorely (degassing), while no data were available for Bezymianny (dome extrusion) and Karymsky (intermittent mild explosions) volcanoes. Klyuchevskoy seems to be currently quiet.

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): A few hours ago, another moderately strong explosions occurred at 14:48 h local time, which threw incandescent fragments at distances of 100 m from the crater and generated an ash column reaching nearly 2 km in height, which was dispersed towards the northwest. The alert level remains unchanged at Yellow Phase 2.
Yesterday's strong eruption ejected bombs to distances of up to 2 km and many ignited bushfires. There were reports of ashfall in Tetela del Volcán, Ocuituco, Yecapixtla, Atlatlahucan, Cuautla, Tlayacapan, Yautepec, Jiutepec y Xochitepec in the state of Morelos, and also in Ecatzingo, Atlautla y Ozumba in the state of México.
