Volcano news: Santa Maria (Guatemala)

Santiaguito volcano (Guatemala) activity update

Wednesday Jul 16, 2014 14:34 PM | DOOR: T

Activity seems to have been a bit higher today, as the report of INSIVUMEH's volcano observatory suggests. A moderate explosion was observed this morning, causing light ash fall towards the SW in the area of Finca El Rosario Palajunoj. The active lava flow from the eastern rim of the Caliente dome continues to advance slowly within the 9 May collapse scar.
A hot lahar descended yesterday through the Nima I river valley.
For a great visualization of the topography and recent evolution of the viscous lava flow of Santiaguito, have a look at an excellent recent article on Culture Volcan.
