Strombolian explosion at Fuego last night, seen from SE.Fuego (Guatemala): (1 Jan) Activity at the volcano has remained at similar levels (if not decreased a bit) as during the past days.
When observed during the past night and this morning, strombolian-type explosions of small to sometimes strong intensity ejected abundant incandescent bombs in all directions from the summit vents. A small lava flow is active on the upper SE flank, producing often continuous glowing rockfalls that travel up to approx. 1 km towards the Las Lajas ravine.
No new pyroclastic flows were observed. Overall, activity seemed to be on a slowly decreasing trend.
