Fuego volcano (Guatemala), activity update: moderate strombolian activity, small lava flows
Strombolian activity at Guatemala's Fire Mountain "Fuego" remains high. INSIVUMEH reports exposions of typically 50-100 m height, although sometimes stronger explosions, such as one on on 1 July throw lava to up to 300 m.A new lava flow, about 250 m long, and headed towards the Río Taniluyá river had started on 27 June from the secondary vent. The older flow, mostly active in March-April, originating from the summit crater, continues slowly as well.
