San Miguel volcano news & activity updates

San Miguel volcano (El Salvador) activity update

Wednesday Jan 08, 2014 10:36 AM | DOOR: T

Chaparrastique (the local name of the volcano) is still restless. SNET reports seismicity at (low) levels similar to before and after the eruption on 30 Dec, and a degassing plume of 100 m height, with a decreasing tendency. However, new eruptions with little or no warning could occur and authorities ask people not to approach the crater.
