Morphology : dacitic dome complex.
Geographical location: 14 ° 44 ’33 “N latitude, 91 ° 34’13” W longitude

Heavy rains at the top of Santiaguito volcano generated strong lahars, in the bed of the Nima I River, a tributary of the Samala river, with plenty of pasty fine material, hot, with blocks of 50 to 70 cms, trunks and tree branches, a mudslide with a width of 30 meters. Lahars are part of the activity of the Santiaguito volcano due to the amount of rain in the volcanic area, which drags the volcanic material from past eruptions and daily activity. So they continue to be generated during the rainy season.
Therefore, the INSIVUMEH recommends:

A CONRED, mainly to take precautions to bridge Castillo Armas.
