Santiaguito's Caliente lava dome yesterday morning
Tuesday, Oct 22, 2013
An increase in effusive activity was reported. The observatory mentioned "abundant activity" from two lava flows on the western and southern flank of the Caliente dome, which generate block avalanches. Explosive activity has remained at normal, rather weak levels with infrequent ash explosions ejecting plumes of up to about 700 m height. [meer...]

The volcano is in its most typical state of activity. After a few days with less (recorded) activity, the volcano's lava dome has again produced a number of small to moderate explosions with ash plumes rising up to about 700 m yesterday. Glow was observed at the eastern rim of the Caliente dome, which suggests that slow lava extrusion has resumed there as well. [meer...]
