Current seismic signal from STG station (INSIVUMEH)
The volcano is almost continuously hidden in clouds, but the seismic signal suggests ongoing rock avalanches from probably still weakly active lava flows on the dome flanks.
Tue, 25 Sep 2012, 10:05
Small avalanches from the southern side of the dome and few weak explosions ejecting ash clouds to 200-300 m height occurred during the past 24 hours.
Sun, 23 Sep 2012, 10:05
Small explosions with fine ash columns rising to between 300 and 400 meters above the crater, moving southwest. Degassing steam plumes of 100-150 m height, small avalanches on the southern slope of the dome.

Current seismic signal from STG1 station (INSIVUMEH)
INSIVUMEH reports only steaming from the lava dome, but the seismic signal still shows what probably are near-constant rockfalls from the steep slopes and still active (?) lava flows on its flanks.

No explosions were reported from Santiaguito during the past days. The observatory reports a steam plume rising 400m and small incandescent avalanches from the lava dome's lava flows on the NE and SE flanks.

In the Cone crater sustained Hot white plume 400 meters high. There have been few explosions with gray ash columns to 700 meters above the crater, moving west, northwest, over the region of the village of El Rosario and San Marcos, Palajunoj. It is observed that the lava flows are active with avalanches and small pyroclastic flows blocks in front of them. (INSIVUMEH)

Few explosions ejecting ash columns 500 feet high, spreading west, northwest, over the region of the village of El Rosario and San Marcos, Palajunoj. Constant activity in the 4 active lava flows, generating avalanches of blocks deposited within the river banks Nima Nima I and II. (INSIVUMEH)

Santiaguito 09/13/2012 (INSIVUMEH)
INSIVUMEH reports weak to moderate explosions expelling gray ash columns 700 feet high moving southwest. Some moderate explosions are accompanied by rumbling sounds. There are constant incandescent avalanches from the active lava flows.
Thu, 13 Sep 2012, 10:05
A moderate explosion occurred yesterday at 05:38 and produced a gray ash plume of 700 m height and drifting 3 km SW, where light ash fall occurred (Parcelamiento Monte Claro). Weak rumblings and a steam plume are noted from the lava dome.
