Prevailing winds disperse an ash plume from Fuego to the SW in December 1978 as a small pyroclastic flow descends the SE (left) flank. Intermittent minor eruptions took place over a two-year interval from 11 September 1977 to 8 August 1979. Strombolian eruptions were sometimes accompanied by small pyroclastic flows and lava flows.
