Ash Plume from Guatemala Volcano Fuego on Webcam

September 14th, 2012 by Mark

It might not be as disruptive as one ash plume from one unpronounceable Icelandic volcano, but the Guatemalan volcano Fuego is has recently been erupting.

This is the second time the Fuego has erupted this year. In May the volcano produced a five kilometre ash cloud.

It seems the activity from the Fuego might be waning.

The volcano became active last week, creating an impressive ash cloud and pyroclastic flows travelling two kilometres from Fuego’s summit. Even shockwaves have been felt 10 kilometres from Fuego. The activity has prompted the evacuation of nearby towns, moving residents to shelters.

You can check out a webcam showing the latest pictures from the Fuego volcano here. NASA also has a satellite feed showing a view of the ash cloud from above.
