A microseisme at 6:27 today, which because of its low magnitude could not be located, was recorded.
The lava lake on the floor of the crater Santiago can still be observed from the Mirador 2. Currently the emitted sound wave is moderate, are also present very small gas explosions, ejecting minimum volumes of volcanic ash that accumulated on the areas surrounding the crater.
The emanation of volcanic gases reach a height of 350 meters above the crater, and are moved by the wind toward the West and Southwest.
The seismic amplitude in real time (RSAM) remains at low and moderate values for this volcano and is currently at 180 units.
The Masaya Volcano is of great tourist importance and record a lot of visitors. The lake can be seen from the point of view « 2 » of the volcano. Today, one of those emissions surprised the population, but the Masaya National Park rangers note that « emanations are a part of his normal activity.«
