      Guadalajara • After an observation flight over the cone of Volcan de Colima to obtain photographic material for scientific analysis, it was observed that almost completely destroyed the giant volcanic dome growing in the crater since 2007.

      This was detected by monitoring permanent jobs, monitoring and scientific analysis of the activity of the volcano, which performs the Jalisco government, through the State Unit of Civil Protection and Fire (UEPCB).

      The unit itself reported that at 21:40 pm yesterday, and after four hours prior to presence of volcanic seismic events, there was an explosive event of low magnitude (similar to what occurred on January 6, 2013), which led to the expulsion of hot material to the west of the volcano.

      "The explosion last night in conjunction with the event recorded on 6 January, destroyed much of the existing dome in the volcano's summit since 2007, forming a new crater measuring approximately 220 meters in diameter and average depth 50 meters, "he said.

      According to analysis by the Scientific Committee Jalisco-Colima, it is estimated that, overall, both events drove approximately 1.5 million cubic meters of volcanic material that was part of this dome destroyed, "he said.

      He added that overflight conducted by scientists of Jalisco and Colima helicopter aboard the "Phoenix" Civil Protection and Fire Jalisco, was observed in the central part of the new crater lava body representing a new outpouring of magma.

      According to the information provided by the thermal camera used during the flight, having a temperature below 200 degrees Celsius, causing effusion indicate a low rate (volume and magma output speed), which coincides with the position of observation low outgassing (fumaroles practically nonexistent) in general.

      He said the evening event on 10 January generated a column of ash that the effect of the winds (in this season are predominant direction from southwest to northeast), traveled to Ciudad Guzman, depositing a thin layer of volcanic ash surface without risks to health.

          On Sunday January 13 the third explosion occurred, the event was smaller than the previous two.

          The last three events drove approximately 1.5 million cubic meters of volcanic material that was part of this dome destroyed.

          Now it is visible from the air main crater 420 meters in diameter and a new crater in the center of 220 meters in diameter.

          "Now in this dome that formed during these years is where these explosions are happening and they are those who have made this new inner crater inside this little dome," said Reyes Dávila.

          Events may not develop.

          "So far, with the surveillance systems we have, with the information we have so far we do not think this is going to escalate significantly," said Gabriel Reyes.

          On the evolution of such explosive events, the exclusion zone must be maintained in an average radius of 7.5 km with respect to the crater.
