Strombolian explosion from Fuego this morning
Santiaguito (Guatemala): (1 Oct) Activity has picked up during the past days: a series of partial collapses from the Caliente lava dome has been generating small to moderately large (up to 4-5 km long) pyroclastic flows, the volcano observatory reported in its latest special bulletin.
Fuego (Guatemala): (1 Oct) A phase of increased activity with lava flow effusion occurred during the past days, but has subsided by now again.
Starting 27 Sep, two lava flows started to descend on the southern and western sides of the volcano, while strombolian explosions were larger than usual in size.

There is no sign that the volcano is about to erupt in a very near future, but it could be a medium- or long-term precursor of a next eruption. ... [more]
