A volcanic eruption, Santiago June 17, 2016

The Santiago volcano, located in Quetzaltenango, in western Guatemala, Friday reported a loud explosion, the spokesman for the state National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction (Conrad), David de Leon said.
Since last May 25, the giant was “calm” until Friday, at 09:15 local time (15:15 GMT and 11:15 Chilean time) generated a “loud explosion” with a column ash about 5,000 meters above the sea level.
De Leon explained that because of this situation was loud rumblings, shock waves and pyroclastic flows by this and west flanks of the volcano, driving pumps about two kilometers from the hot dome.
This is the first blast of June since the volcano, 2,550 meters high, began last February with this pattern of eruptive activity, a total of 58.
