Santa María / Santiaguito volcano (Guatemala) activity update: moderate ash explosions 400-600 m high, viscous lava flow from dome, avalanches and small lahars

Wednesday Jun 27, 2012 09:19 AM | DOOR: T

A moderate explosion occurred at 05:47 26 June producing a 600 m tall ash column drifting SE, and causing ash fall in the areas of Finca San José and Finca La Quina. Weak avalanches descended from the SE side of the dome and the lava flow front on its SW side. After 21:00 at night, a small lahar descended into the Nimá I river.
