Small explosion at Santiaguito on the morning of 28 Dec 2015
During our stay at / near Santa Maria volcano during 26-29 Dec, we observed only explosive activity at Santiaguito, but no signs of effusive activity (lava flows): no rockfalls or other movements were seen at the recently active lava flows or on the flanks of the dome itself, indicating that at present, no lava flows are active. ...meer [Lees alle]

Explosion from Santiaguito this morning (image: Sismos en Guatemala ‏@SismosGuate / twitter)
A phase of elevated activity has started at the volcano since 29 November. The largest event so far occurred this morning at 07:07 local time, when a strong explosion produced an ash plume that rose approx. 2-3 km and (probably) a small pyroclastic flow. Ash fall occurred in nearby villages and towns including San Marcos Palajunoj, and Finca La Florida. ...meer [Lees alle]

Pyroclastic flow from Santiaguito last Wednesday (INSIVUMEH)
Activity has picked up during the past days: a series of partial collapses from the Caliente lava dome has been generating small to moderately large (up to 4-5 km long) pyroclastic flows, the volcano observatory reported in its latest special bulletin.

Activity at the Caliente lava dome remains essentially unchanged. Some explosions produced ash plumes of up to 500 m height and the eastern blocky lava flow remains weakly active.

Activity from the volcano has been low recently. Occasional weak explosions accompany the slow effusion of a blocky lava flow descending on the eastern flank of the Caliente dome.
