Masaya , Nicaragua : A strong volcanic tremor persists .

A strong volcanic tremor persists, due to a substantial flow of magma under the crater of the Masaya volcano .
Gases leaving the crater Santiago have such a high temperature (between 600 and 800 degrees Celsius) that their incandescence is visible at night to several kilometers.

The possibility that happen explosions in the crater Santiago is still present, as well as the possibility of emissions of gases, ash, hot rock fragments and lava.
Seismic amplitude in real time (RSAM) is maintained at moderate to high values between 100 and 550 units.
