A 300-meter-long lava flow has been recorded flowing doen Ceniza barranca, which were accompanied by with moderate to strong avalanches.
Incandescent material was ejected 100 m to 200 m above the crater and created moderate avalanches.
Ashfall was reported in Santa Sofía (12 km SW), Morelia (9 km SW), Panimaché I and II (8 km SW), Finca Palo Verde, San Pedro Yepocapa (8 km NW), Sangre de Cristo (8 km WSW) and El Porvenir (8 km ENE).
both zones recorded minor but shallow tremors that were felt widely.
The two earthquakes were felt and heard by residents of Sabattus and nearby cities, around 6 p.m. on Sunday evening.
The depth of the strongest quake was just over 3 miles and this also the reason so many people felt it, despite its M2.2.
Maine sits in the middle of the North American Plate, which slightly moves every year. The motion puts stress on the entire crust of North America and when it is released, it creates some small earthquakes and rumbling noises like those people felt and heard around Sabattus, yesterday.
Just a few hours later, 3 minor and shallow earthquakes also rattle the New Madrid Fault. 2 right in the ‘red zone’ of the fault line and one a bit aside.
