In Salvador, the Chaparrastique / San Miguel , the probability of an eruption in the next days increased.

MARN indicates an increase in internal vibrations ( RSAM ), an increase in the frequency and magnitude of gas impulses, rumblings in the crater , small explosions accompanied by fine ash falls ... rich in juvenile material !

The eruption could issue more material than in the last activity, on 12.29.2013 , and may,  in the light of the micro- seismicity, concern either the crater or the northern flank of the volcano.
