CONRED reported that during 8-9 August the lava flow that had descended Fuego?s Ceniza (SSW) drainage was still active, producing avalanches of material and emissions.
Explosions generated ash plumes that rose 650 m above the crater.
According to INSIVUMEH ash plumes from explosions during 11-12 and 14-15 August rose 650-850 m and drifted 7-8 km W and SW.
Ashfall was reported in areas downwind including in Panimache (8 km SW), Morelia (9 km SW), Santa Sofía (12 km SW), El Porvenir (8 km ENE), Yepocapa, and Sangre de Cristo (8 km WSW).
Incandescent material was ejected 100-150 m above the crater rim, and caused avalanches of material that traveled down multiple ravines.
