In the last 24 hours, three explosions were recorded on the Momotombo volcano, for a total of 56 explosions since the volcanic activity resumed.
The strongest explosion of this period took place at 2:16
In which was emitted ash and incandescent material on the East and North sides of the volcano. The other 02 explosions were relatively low, and occurred at 1:59 and 10:21 today.
Seismic amplitude in real time (RSAM) of Momotombo is low, between 25 and 75 units.
Yesterday afternoon the staff of INTER made a new field visit to the volcano and observed that the vents on the floor of the crater Santiago are becoming larger due to small landslides of their walls.
They also managed to see the mouth located in the northeast of the crater, which sporadically expels small lava streams, which is a normal process in the conditions in which this volcano is located.
At 4:28 p.m. yesterday, a small earthquake in the caldera of the Masaya volcano, which by its low magnitude could not be located.
Seismic amplitude volcanic tremor of real-time (RSAM) remains very high values between 250 and 940 units.
A micro-seismic activity remained high, with the appearance of small gas explosions inside the volcano.
A fairly strong glow in the crater floor shows the presence of lava near the active vents.
Seismic amplitude in real time (RSAM) is low to moderate, with values between 40 and 140 units.
During this period it was possible to locate 02 earthquakes, the first was magnitude M1,2 at 17:15 yesterday, and the second of magnitude M 1.1 occurred at 9:27 today.
Volcan San Cristobal.
Yesterday at 09:24 am, a magnitude 2.3 M earthquake was recorded, located north of the volcano, home to local faults.
This earthquake did not affect the behavior (relative calm) presented by this volcano.
