“Now we are just waiting that in the short time or event possible next week, we will have the first collapses of material from the volcano” Said Gabriel Reyes, director of the Volcano Observatory of the University of Colima.
The new dome could be accumulation for more that 400 thousands cubic meters of material on environment.
On January 6th the “Fuego volcano of Colima” awoke with a bang after 18th months in complete calm. Since then, there have been four significant explosions, which have been destroying the dome on top.
A new lava flow has appeared from the summit crater of Fuego volcano and is traveling towards Trinidad canyon and about 300 m long. Weak explosions occur from time to time as well, with plumes rising only a few 100 meters. The current seismic signal shows an increase of activity over the past hours.
