The volcanic unrest continues!
Spectacular explosions of Colima (Mexico), Etna (Italy), Fuego (Guatemala) and Sinabung (Indonesia) recorded on January 26, 2017. Alert level at Bosgoslof (USA) raised to red AGAIN.
Crazy. no? Now in pictures!
Some volcanoes around the world are currently experiencing a strong volcanic activity. One of them, the Colima volcano in Mexico, had a spectacular eruption at night.
The ejected incandescent material covered the entire volcanic dome in a red.
Volcanic lightnings lit up in blue the plume of ash and gase that sose up to 2 kilometers above the summit.
Images are just incredible.
In Italy, the Etna volcano constantly explodes since two days, now. And there is no rest in sight.
The volcano summit is now covered by several meters of snow (unstable and prone to avalanches). Lava and snow do not like each others. When they get into contact, so-called burning avalanches can flow at high speed towards the valley.
This happened on February 11, 2014, when an avalanche of debris and lava covered the Valle del Bove in just a few tens of seconds. Hikers just be very cautious!
The first eruption of 2017 of the Fuego volcano in Guatemala only lasted less than 24 hours. The main explosion occurred at night on january 25.
On 26 January at midday, only weak explosions were recorded, accompanied by plume of ash and gas rising to 4,300 m asl.
Lava flows have been reported in the Trinidad and Ceniza barrancas, but have now stopped flowing.
Meanwhile, the aviation alert level has been raised to red AGAIN in the area of the Bogoslof volcano due to a strong eruption of the volcano on January 26 at 6:50 AM AKST / 15:50 UTC that sent a plume of ash gas 9000 meters in the air.
Finally, the Sinabung volcano is also entering another short but strong eruptive activity in Indonesia.
No rest in peace in volcanic regions! Take care!
