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

Volcanological Special Bulletin.

The constant rain in the volcanic area, generated a moderate lahar, hot, in the bed of the river Nima I, with the possibility of a sharp increase in the next few minutes. With a strong smell of sulfur, blocks of 50 cm to one meter, trunks and branches of trees and abundant volcanic material pasty.
This is the first moderate lahar.

Recall :
The intense eruptive activity that took over this year, maintained a wealth of material accumulated in the arms of the river Cabello De Angel , a tributary of the river Nima I.
These events will continue to be produced in the days and months, so you should take precautions, mainly on the bridge Castillo Armas.
Therefore, the INSIVUMEH recommends:
A CONRED:
Take the necessary precautions, because the constant rain can generate other lahars in other rivers of the Santiaguito volcano and Fuego volcano .
At the Road Directorate:
Take the precautions they deem necessary as rains continue at the top of volcanos generate lahars mainly afternoon and evening, with the possibility of flooding and damage to road infrastructure.
