The Fuego volcano in the last hours has undergone an increase in activity from the early morning of November 25, with the observation of the progress of two lava flows inside the canyon Trinidad and Santa Teresa on South and West flanks of the volcano.
The reports of the OVFGO at this time, notes the observation of 4 to 6 explosions per hour, accompanied by degassing sounds identical to those of a locomotive, with periods of 7 minutes. This activity is accompanied by moderate ash explosions up to 4500/4600 m hight.
These rumblings and explosions generate moderate to high sound shock waves, over 12 km, mainly to the south and the southwest flank.
