Fuego volcano news & eruption updates:
Fuego volcano's activity remains at moderate levels. Lava flows travel down the SW flank, reaching 150 m from the dome. Sporadic explosions eject bombs to 100 m above the crater.
The two active lava flows have become weaker and shorter over the past days. The flow down Río Ceniza only reaches about 100 m length and the other one descending Taniluyá seems to be no longer or only weakly alimentated, although a new pulse might have started in the afternoon of 9 May.
Occasional small strombolian explosions form ash and steam plumes of ~400 a 700 m height and throw incandescent material onto the SW and SE flanks of the volcano.
Over the past weeks, weak strombolian activity continued at Fuego volcano, ejecting incandescent material ~50-75 m high, and gas plumes to ~150-200 m above the volcano. Incandescent landslides traveled down the volcano's S and W flanks. Lava flowed ~400 m S towards Taniluyá ravine.
Weak activity continues at Fuego, with strong degassing from the lava dome and a small lava flow traveling towards the Taniluyá ravine. Forest fires at the flank of the volcano render visibility around the volcano poor.
Fuego volcano continues its weak strombolian activity, ejecting incandescent material ~50-75 m high and producing gas plumes to ~300 m above the volcano (13,300 ft a.s.l.). Short pyroclastic avalanches occur on the upper flanks. On 28 March, lava flowed ~450 m S and avalanches occurred from the lava-flow fronts. ->More on Fuego
Moderate and small strombolian explosions continue at Fuego volcano, ejecting relatively little amounts of fresh lava. The steam and ash plumes reach about 400-800 m above the crater and are quickly dispersed, mainly to the west. Small rockfall-induced pyroclastic flow occur occasionally towards barranca Río Taniluyá and Santa Teresa. ...more on Fuego
Fuego continues its low-level strombolian activity. 27 small strombolian explosions were recorded today, ejecting incandescent blocks to up to 50 m above the lava dome. Minor rock falls from the sides of the dome produce small blaock and ash flows into the barrancas Santa Teresa, Taniluyá and Trinidad.
Fuego's activity remains low, with weak strombolian activity continuing (typically 5-10 explosions per day).
During the past weeks, weak-to-moderate explosions continue to occur at Fuego. Shock waves from the explosions were sometimes felt in villages near the volcano. Small avalanches of volcanic material traveled down Fuego's S and W flanks.
Fuego volcano is continuing to be in a more active phase compared to recent months, with moderate strombolian activity from the summit, several lava flows travelling down its flanks and occasional ash plumes up to 1-2 km height.
