Two parallel lobes of block lava with prominent flow levees descending head of the Cordoban drainage on the SW flank of Colima volcano are seen here on February 8, 1999. The flows are partly confined within marginal levees of older lava flows. Lava effusion had begun from the summit lava dome on November 20, 1998 and quickly produced a flow that split into three lobes as it diverged around topographic highs on the upper flanks of the volcano.
