Santiaguito , Guatemala : The constant rain in the volcanic area, currently generates a moderate lahar.

The constant rain in the volcanic area, currently generates a moderate lahar in the riverbed Nima I, with the potential to rise high in the next few minutes, which was recorded by the seismic station Stg3 and reported by the OVSAN.
The characteristics of this lahar are: emanation of a strong smell of sulfur, hot, transport of blocks from 50 cm to one meter, plenty of trunks and branches of trees and pasty volcanic materials.
Because of the intense eruptive activity this year, the accumulation of abundant volcanic material in the region remains the cause of these lahars in the Ángel Cabello River, a tributary of the river Nima I.

These events continue to be generated during the day and especially during the rainy season, we must take precautions, especially at the height of the bridge Castillo Armas on Samalá river.
Therefore, the INSIVUMEH recommends:
At CONRED:
Take precautions, because the rain continues and can generate other lahars in the rivers of Santiaguito and Fuego volcano.
At DIRECTION OF ROADS:
Take the precautions they deem necessary, because the rainy season, at the top of volcanos, generate lahars mainly afternoon and evening, with the possibility of flooding and damage to road infrastructure mainly on the bridge Castillo Armas.
