Santa Maria (Guatemala) update
From the GVP/USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report 18-24 May 2005:
Constant avalanches occurred from lava-flow fronts on the SW flank of Santa Maria's Santiaguito lava-dome complex on 17 May. Explosions during 17-20 May produced ash clouds to a height of ~1 km above the volcano (15,700 ft a.s.l.); ash fell 7-10 km from Caliente Dome.
