An overflight on the morning of December 3, 1998 shows dark-colored lava flows advancing down the SW flank of Colima volcano.  The flow in the center is diverted by a rock cleaver into two lobes.  By the previous day the three lava flows on the SSW flanks had reached estimated lengths of 1000 m (more westerly flow), 1200 m (central flow), and 900 m (SE flow).  Nevado de Colima is on the upper left horizon. Photo by Juan Carlos Gavilanes, 1998 (Colima Volcano Observatory, Universidad de Colima).
