Masaya , Nicaragua : rise in the level of the lava lake .

We are witnessing a rise in the level of the lava lake in the crater Santiago.
The mouth of the crater, located in the northeast of the volcano, is surrounded by major landslides that occurred in recent days, which are diluted in the high temperatures of the lava lake, without generating explosions.

Seismic amplitude in real time varies as moderate to high, with values between a range from 250 to 750 units.
The emission of volcanic gases has increased slightly since last week, not representing, at that moment danger for the population.
