New powerful explosion at Calientedome of Santiaguito on 10 July: it was accompanied by an ash plume rising to 5,500 meters a.s.l., then moving over 40 km further west.
Pyroclastic flows went down the southern slopes over 2 km.
A danger zone of 5 km. around the cone is to respect because of the danger of falling and fragments expelled during the explosions.
The lava flow 61 g southeast of Pu'u O'o continues its advance on the coastal plain, although it slowed his progress for two days. The lava front is located about 1,000 meters from the ocean.
There is one year, the Colima produced the most violent eruption since 1982.

On Saturday 11 July, an overview of the volcano by Proteccion Civil Jalisco showed a significant degassing, moderately loaded into ashes. The fallout plume of ash and collapses are mostly on a west-southwesterly and are reported on Zapotitlan de Vadillo and Carrizalillos.
During the day of Saturday, the pyroclastic flows have continued, and SEGOB advised to avoid staying in the ravines surrounding the Colima, because of the risk of possible lahars in case of rain.
