Volcanic activity in October Guatemala 2013

Yep! She blew again!

A bevy of satellites have caught a bird's-eye view of Guatemala's Pacaya volcano since the peak popped its top on March 2. Pacaya watchers have posted images of ash plumes and glowing lava on their blogs, all from the watchful sensors of four NASA satellites, including Landsat 7 and Landsat 8, Terra and Aqua.

Pacaya volcano is close to the capital, Guatemala City, and just 24 miles (38 kilometers) from resort towns such as Antigua. The 8,373-foot-tall peak (2,552 meters) is one of Guatemala's most active volcanoes and has been belching on and off since January. An explosion on Monday (March 3) opened a new lava vent between the volcano's Cerro Chino and Mackenney crater, according to CONRED, the national hazard-monitoring agency.

On Sunday, Pacaya spewed ash 13,000 feet (4,000 m) into the sky, prompting some flight cancellations, though the ash is moving away from the capital and resorts. The volcano is at yellow alert and no evacuations have been ordered, according to CONRED. Volcanic activity at Pacaya is currently waning, according to the national geological agency, INSIVUMEH.

Early Saturday morning, Jan. 11th, 2014 the active Pacaya Volcano saw a new lava flow heading towards the municipality of San Francisco and the volcano alert hazard status was lifted to code ORANGE. This is big news! Tourist crowds have begun the return to the volcano to witness a once in a lifetime event, active lava flows. We hope the flows continue. Overnight camping trips begin at OX immediately. For more information or comments please contact us

The Real Adventure in Guatemala...

We are a professional ADVENTURE guide operator. This means we are in the business of chaos management and calculated risk. We cannot control our environment, we take you into MOTHER NATURE, she will determine your experience. We have no control over the weather, volcanic eruptions or any other form of chaos, we can only prepare to handle these situations. This is why it is called an ADVENTURE. So please do not sign up for any of our tours if you cannot accept our limitations working with nature. The natural world is tough, this is simply the nature of the business. But if you are ready to truly live, then join us for something amazing. OX
