Cenapred has identified 234 exhalations, 352 minutes of tremor and 9 minor explosions at Popocatépetl for the last 24 hours, recorded today at 02:12, 02:47, 04:51, 06:01, 06:08, 06: 1: 7:17 a.m., 8:00 a.m. and 8:33 a.m., accompanied by the emission of gas and small amounts of ash that have dispersed to the northwest, in addition to the emission of fragments for some of they.
The volcano presents a continuous emission of gas and light ash with a predominant direction to the north.
This February 18, with the support of the National Guard, a reconnaissance overflight was carried out at the crater of the Popocatepetl volcano. During this overview, specialists from the National Center for Disaster Prevention (CENAPRED) of the National Coordination for Civil Protection and researchers from the Geophysics Institute of UNAM were able to observe that no substantial change has been made. happened. The internal crater, covered with tephra, maintains a diameter of 350 m and an approximate depth of 100 to 150 m.
The alert level remains at Amarillo Fase 2

The week of February 10 to 16, 2020 was characterized at Etna by
- a strombolian and effusive intracrateric activity of the Voragine crater,
- an episodic strombolian activity in the New Southeast Crater,
- and an ordinary degassing activity with soft and discontinuous ash emissions from the northeast crater.
Fracturing and infrasound activity remained weak.
The Etna soil deformation monitoring networks did not show any significant change.
At the geochemical level, the SO2 fluxes are at an average level,
The HCl flow reaches a medium-high level.
The flow of CO2 from soils is at medium-low levels.
The partial pressure of dissolved CO2 does not show significant variations.
The isotopic ratio of helium (data from January 28) is on medium-high values.
No update on the CO2 / SO2 ratio is available. The last figure for January remains at average values.
A small Strombolian activity still enlivens Voragine on February 17 at the new cone.
Thermal anomalies are classified as moderate from February 17 to 19, 2020

In Stromboli, a normal activity was observed during the period from February 10 to 16, 2020.
It is of the explosive strombolian type, accompanied by degassing; the hourly rate of explosions fluctuated between average values (12 events / h on February 11) and average-high values (18 events / h on February 16). The intensity of the explosions was mainly medium-low in the region of the North crater and medium-high in the zone of the Center-South crater.
An increase in the amplitude of the tremor and of the explosion earthquakes is recorded since 14.02.
The deformation of the Stromboli soils did not show any significant change to report for the period considered.
At the Geochemistry level, the flow of SO2 is at a medium-low level
The CO2 / SO2 ratio is at an average value (last update on 02/10/2020).
The isotopic ratio of dissolved helium in the aquifer is at low-medium levels.
