Hundreds of photographs were published on social networks, from the Villarrica volcano with intense fumarole from the crater of this volcano in the Andes.
It should be noted that the SERNAGEOMIN has not issued additional reports regarding the activity of the volcano, on an increase in activity.
The Villarrica volcano remains under yellow alert since 3 April, when the technical body detected seismic activity associated with records and lava movements inside the crater.
The National Service of Geology -Sernageomin by the volcano monitoring network of Chile had declared a yellow alert on the Villarrica volcano, after an increase in seismicity Tremor type was recorded, associated with magma movement in the volcanic conduit and surface explosions, and had also increased the access restriction within 500 meters to 1 km from the crater.
Through a special report of volcanic activity, the institution stated that “the monitoring stations recorded an increase of the energy of the seismic signal of volcanic tremor, which, in the case of Villarrica is closely linked to the dynamics of a lava lake , which reached maximum values of reduced displacement of 20 cm2 and seismic amplitudes of 12 microns / sec, values considered as moderate for this volcano. In addition, through the web cameras installed around the volcano, there was an increase in surface activity, represented by the observation of incandescent and Strombolian explosions (projection of particles of various sizes) from the crater “.
This Sunday, the Villarrica volcano present an intense fumarole, a fact that was saved by social network users. Despite this, the SERNAGEOMIN has not made any changes to yellow alert in place.
