INSIVUMEH reports strong rockfall activity from the steep-sided lava flows, suggesting that several of them are being alimented at the moment. Strong degassing produces a steam column rising up to about 1 km above the dome.
Wed, 28 Aug 2013, 04:49
A moderate explosion took place yesterday morning at 03:24 h local time, generating an eruption column rising 1.3 km, a pyroclastic flow on the SW flank of the dome, and an ash plume that drifted southwest and caused ashfall on Palajunoj. ...meer

Yesterday's eruption of Santiaguito (webcam image: INSIVUMEH, annotated by Blog Culture Volcan)
A major eruption occurred yesterday evening. Starting at 17:45 (local time), the top part of the Caliente lava dome collapsed and produced a series of relatively large pyroclastic flows and explosions. Ash plumes rose more than 2 km to elevations of 4 km altitude. ...meer

Activity remains relatively elevated with occasional explosions producing ash plumes up to about 1 km height. Fine ash fall occurs in areas downwind in up to 10 km distance. The risk of lahars (mud flows) triggered by rainfall remains high.

Explosion from Santiaguito this morning (INSIVUMEH)
A series of stronger explosions occurred this morning from the Caliente lava dome. The explosions produced several small pyroclastic flows on the flanks of the dome and ash plumes of more than 1 km height rose to 3-3.5 km a.s.l. ...meer
Mon, 5 Aug 2013, 15:46
No changes in activity need to be reported. The lava dome continues to produce occasionally small explosions and feeds at least one weakly active block lava flow on the southern slope of the dome. ...meer

Santiaguito with a small explosion yesterday morning
No significant changes in activity have occurred. A moderate explosion was observed yesterday morning, producing an ash plume about 500 m high. Some avalanches occurred at the lava flows on the southern slope of the dome.
Thu, 25 Jul 2013, 14:05
The lava dome has been very calm during the past day. No explosions and no movement at the previously active lava flow (on the southern slope) were observed.
Mon, 22 Jul 2013, 03:07
Activity remains low with no significant changes. Few explosions occur, but the lava flow on the southern slope of the Caliente dome remains weakly active.

Moderate explosion from Santiaguito early on 18 July
Not much has changed in the generally weak activity. Occasional explosions, sometimes moderately large, occur at irregular intervals. One yesterday morning at 05:59 local time produced an ash plume of 700 m height and ash fall in areas to the SW. The lava flow on the southern flank of the dome remains active and produces small rock avalanches.
