The seismic station recorded the loud explosion, as well as low-moderate explosions and lowering a strong avalanches.
The explosion produced an ash plume from a height of about 4500 meters. (14.763 ft) to the south and southwest. This explosion has made no fallout or pyroclastic flows. The ash column was observed very thick, but included little material.
Santiaguito volcanic complex is in a high eruptive phase, so that similar or stronger events can be generated in the hours and \ or days. So, do not stay near the volcanic complex because it can generate pyroclastic flows of equal or greater intensity.
Therefore, INSIVUMEH recommends:
A CONRED, to take the necessary precautions, the implementation of the state deems necessary precautions near the volcanic complex.
A Directorate General of Civil Aviation, to take precautions with air traffic as ash move to the South and the Southwest at a height of 4500 meters above sea level, with the potential to be transported over greater distances.
