Santiaguito volcano (Guatemala), elevated explosive activity
Friday Nov 30, 2012 12:05 PM | DOOR: TOMPFEIFFER
In the recent days, Santiaguito has been producing a number of larger-than-average explosions that caused ash fall in the surrounding areas. Ash plumes from these explosions rose 1.5-3.2 km / 5000-10,000 ft above the lava dome and were sometimes accompanied by small pyroclastic flows.
This phase of elevated (but still quite normal) activity has caused damage to coffee, bean and sugar cane crops in the nearby fields.

The lava flows from the dome remain very active, INSIVUMEH reports. At 06:09 this morning, a moderate pyroclastic flow was triggered by collapsing material of one of the flow fronts on the SE side.
Tuesday, Nov 20, 2012
The activity remains at low levels and mainly effusive. There are only few and small explosions and the lava flows from the dome continue to be weakly active.
Friday, Nov 16, 2012
A weak explosion occurred at 19:16 h local time with an ash column rising 400 m and strong glow visible. Constant weak and moderate avalanches from the active lava flows.
Friday, Nov 16, 2012
A part of the western edge of the lava flow on the southeast side of the lava dome collapsed on 15 Nov morning, producing small pyroclastic flows. ...
Tuesday, Nov 13, 2012
A moderately rumbling explosion occurred at 18:46 local time. Overnight, incandescent avalanches could be seen descending from the active lava flows.
