Activity from Santiaguito continues but is at relatively low levels, generating ash and gas plumes of usually less than 1 km, but at relatively regular intervals of about 20 minutes.

Santiaguito lava dome is showing an above average level of activity. Explosions from the lava dome produce ash plumes rising to altitudes of 4.3-4.7 km (14,000-15,400 ft) a.s.l., that drift mainly to the SW.
On 5 June, a lahar (mud flow) descended the Nima I river and carried blocks 1-1.5 m in diameter and tree branches. The approximately 12-m-wide and 3-m-thick deposit was hot and smelled of sulfur. Continuous landslides of blocks and ash were noted on the SW flank.

Ashfall was reported near the Observatory Vulcanológico de Santiaguito (OVSAN), about 5 km S. On 2 April, INSIVUMEH reported that ash plumes rose to 4.4 km (14,400 ft) a.s.l. and drifted SW.
