The Insivumeh Bulletin indicates that the sixth major Fuego's eruption continues on July 11th. The activity generates strong, continuous explosions that produce shock waves that vibrate nearby houses to a distance of 13 km from the volcano, and a plume of thick, gray ash, 1,000 meters high, drifting for 35 km in western direction. Ash falls affect the villages of Morelia, Panimache, Santa Sofía, El Porvenir, Sangre de Cristo and the neighboring communities.

The lava is projected between 150 and 200 meters above the crater and feeds two flows, one in the Barranca Las Lajas 2,300 meters long, the other in the Barraca Santa Teresa 1,700 meters long (data at 6 o'clock local time)
The Conred maintains the level alert Amarilla and recommends to the surrounding population to keep informed by the media and social networks.

After 31 hours of eruption, the level of activity returned to normal, with a drop in the tremor, shock waves and explosions, low fallout and degassing.

There are still weak to moderate explosions, accompanied by a plume at 4,600m asl. Scattering over 6 km to the west. The strong gusts of wind still spread the ash over 25 km.

Lava flows remain active for the moment.

A huge pyrocumulus (*) overcomes Vesuvius in Italy on July 11, 2017. It is caused by several fire pits, presumably of criminal origin, as they have spread out in several places, which extend along the flanks of Volcano. The flames devour the Valley of Delights at Ottaviano and overflow in the street of Vesuvius in Herculaneum, already touched by the fires a few days ago. Tourists, restaurants, residents and their homes are evacuated for the second time in a week.   (*): A pyrocumulus, "Cumulus Flammagenitus" according to the new International Cloud Atlas of 2017, is a cloud of the cumulus family that forms over an intense heat source.   Sources: French, Belgian and Italian media.
