In Santiaguito, the constant rains caused moderate hot lahars towards the Rio Nima, that can increase in power; a strong smell of sulfur that accompanies lahar, where blocks of 50 cm-1 m. mingle with trunks, branches and ashes from the volcano. The recent activity of the volcano has indeed accumulated ash in the drainages of Angel Cabello and Nima rios.
