An aerial view from the NNW on 5 March 1943, about two weeks after the start of the Parícutin eruption, shows the Quitzocho lava flow advancing to the NE as an ash plume rises from the scoria cone. The flow was about 6-15 m thick as it advanced.  Photo by Ezequiel Ordonez, 1943 (U.S. National Archives).
