Volcano news: Santa Maria (Guatemala)

Santa María / Santiaguito volcano (Guatemala) activity update

Friday Feb 01, 2013 16:13 PM | DOOR: TOMPFEIFFER

The eruption remains relatively weak and mainly effusive, with the slow extrusion of lava flows descending the flanks of the dome and producing small to moderate avalanches.
Ash generated by this process is currently blown mainly towards the south where light ash fall occurs, namely in Lotificación las Marías and areas near San Felipe Reu.
