Fuego volcano update (Guatemala)
A new lava flow of about 150 m length towards the valley of Taniluya river in the S of the volcano was observed this evening while the active flow front down at the W side of the volcano remains at about 1 km distance.
In the main crater, stronbolian activity continues. 8 out of 16 observed explosions, accompanied by "locomotive"-like noise, were seen to eject incandescent lava fragments out of the crater, to heights of less than 25m above the central crater rim. A constant, jet-engine like sound was also noted from the crater. Ash and steam plumes from the explosions reached up to about 700m height.
