Confirmation of the new growth of the dome of the Colima volcano.

The National System of Civil Protection has confirmed the growth of a lava dome, with a low extrusion rate in the crater of Colima volcano.
With an overflight conducted Monday (29), the Civil Protection has noted an increase in the size of the lava dome and an increase in fumarolic activity in the South-East.

“In parallel to the monitoring and observation of the Volcan de Fuego, in recent days, there has been a seismic activity that is associated with the rise of magma, with a very typical fumarole activity to the rise of magmatic material indicated Civil Protection through a statement.
The agency added that the northern flank of the fumarole temperatures have maintained a high level compared to other years, and continues to record a slight glow on top of the volcano.

Therefore, the National System of Civil Protection, reiterated to the public that the exclusion zone for all kinds of activity is 5 km radius around the crater, except Montegrande canyon, which is 12 km, this because of the temperature in the pyroclastic flow. Avoid staying in the ravines near the volcano, because of the sudden and violent rains can trigger lahars.
