Pacaya, Guatemala

INSIVUMEH reported that, during 8-14 October, multiple lava flows on the W and SW flanks of Pacaya’s MacKenney cone traveled a maximum distance of 250 m and continued to fill in the area between the cone and Cerro Chino crater to the N. Avalanches occurred from the lava-flow fronts on 8 October. Fumarolic plumes drifted SW.
