Fuego volcano eruption: Guatemala volcano spews 4,700m ash cloud in major explosion

While larger eruptions are rare, small gas and ash eruptions occur every 15 to 20 minutes.

According to Volcano Discovery, on Monday, August 31 “ongoing strombolian activity” caused lava to eject up to 300 metres above the summit of the volcano.

The eruption sparked “moderate to strong avalanches of material”, and lava reportedly started to descend down the slopes of the volcano.

Weak to moderate explosions were recorded at six to nine-hour intervals, and an ash plume reached approximately 4,500 to 4,700ft into the sky.
