End of the eruption of the Fuego volcano.

The tenth recorded eruption in 2016 of the Volcano Fuego ended, it lasted more than 30 hours.
However there are still weak explosions, generating column of ash to a height of 4200-4600 meters. (13,779-15,091pies) traveling 10 kilometers to the South, Southwest and West.

He remains a white fumarole at a height of about 4000 meters. (13.123 feet) dispersed in the South-West direction.
Like rest of the activity , we observe lava flows that go down into the ravines Las Lajas, with an approximate length of 800 meters; and El Jute, with an approximate length of 600 meters. It is expected that lava flowing Debit decline in the coming hours. As for the ash in suspension, they are still present, mainly on the southwest side, which will dissipate in the coming hours.
Therefore, the INSIVUMEH recommends:
Reduce the level of alert and continue until resume the daily activity of the Fuego volcano.

At the Directorate General of Civil Aviation:
It is advisable to take precautions with air traffic, because the ash column reached a height of 4600 meters (15,091pies) to the west – southwest, at a distance of 10 kilometers. There is a chance that the ashes move over a greater distance.
To tourist guides and tourists not to climb to the crater because it has explosions that may generate ballistic fall more than 2 kilometers from the crater.
