Incandescent blocks are extruded as up to 15 m high spines (?) from the lava dome inside the crater of the "Domo Caliente" (the glowing dome). Explosions create gray steam and ash plumes of up to 1,4 km height. Since February, a small lava flow on the SE flank of the lava dome is active, producing small avalanches of blocks detaching from its front, that accumuate in a delta at about 1450 m a.s.l.

Degassing from the summit crater dome produces a white steam plume of about 100m height, while near-constant incandescent rock-falls detach from the active dome.

Yesterday, a small dome collapse occurred at Santa Maria volcano, producing a pyroclastic flow and ash cloud that caused light ash fall in some sourrounding areas of the volcano (Florida, Faro and la Mosqueta). 5 minor explosions took place during the past 24 hours, producing eruptinon columns of 0,8-1,2 km height, lasting few minutes and causing very fine ash fall up to 15km distance to the SSE of the volcano.
