Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-08348
Ash deposits cleared from the streets of Ciudad Guzmán are piled up after the major explosive eruption of 20 January 1913. The eruption plume was calculated to have reached a height of 21 km, and the resulting ashfall 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.
