Ash deposits cleared from the streets of Ciudad Guzmán are piled up like snowbanks after the major explosive eruption of January 20, 1913.  The eruption column was calculated to have reached a height of 21 km, and the resulting ashfall deposits caused significant disruption to the major city of Ciudad Guzmán, 25 km to the NE.  Pyroclastic flows from this eruption reached as far as 17 km from the volcano. Anonymous, 1913.
