Guatemala's Santiaguito continues to produce strong explosions; May 19, 2016 at 9:34 and 9:56, they were accompanied by a plume of gray ash amount to 4,500 meters asl, and pyroclastic flows on the southern flanks.

Of note, a pileus cloud type formed at the top of the volcanic plume, witnessed the high speed training, then was pierced by it.

At Fuego, the eruption of May 18 generated pyroclastic flows "type Boiling over", according INSIVUMEH.

This phenomenon is caused by a magma reboiling and a tangential outlet of abundant quantities of volcanic material and pyroclastic flows, without explosion.

Both volcanoes remain under close monotoring : considering the rains season already present , lahars are likely to form in the evening or during the night.
