The more pertinent to note during the weekend and until now on this volcano, was the appearance of three earthquakes near the volcano, with magnitudes between 1.9 M and 2.2 M which have the characteristics of having been induced by magma movement beneath the volcano.
Momotombo still show little micro-seismicity, an activity with low emissions of volcanic gases, and low seismic amplitude in real time (RSAM), less than 60 units.
The possibility of new explosions occur with gases, ash, and the expulsion of incandescent material at any time persists.
Masaya volcano .
At 11:47 on Saturday, an earthquake of magnitude 2.7 M, south of the caldera of Masaya volcano, which had the characteristics of being induced by magma movement was registered under the caldera of the Masaya volcano.
The volcanic Tremor is low to moderate with values over several days, with a seismic amplitude in real time (RSAM) between 250 and 400 units.
The lava lake maintains its strong regular circulation, with low to moderate emissions of volcanic gases.
