The activity of Colima volcano remains very intense

The activity of Colima volcano remains very intense. Magma continues to rise in the dome and a lava flow on the flank, a viscous lava flow has now reached the base of the cone.

Disconnecting the mass from the flow generate a continuous glowing rockfalls, and sometimes extremely dangerous pyroclastic flows. The volume of the lava dome, which has now completely filled the crater, estimated to have reached 1.2 million cubic meters. Strong degassing and explosions that generate steam and ash which rises to a height of about 3 thousand meters.
