Tourists are banned from entering the area of 1 kilometer from the crater. Really? Here a video showing some images of the eruption and the tourists pretty close to the crater.

Here an image of the ash plume travelling:

This period of explosive activity of the Santiaguito volcano is the most violent in recent years. Expulsion of rock fragments of various sizes at a distance of 2 to 3 km is possible. A ‘no trespassing’ zone of 5km around the volcanic peak has been created.

4. Pavlof volcano, USA

Beginning around 1PM AKDT (21:00 UTC) today, web camera images showed minor ash emissions reaching at most a few hundred feet above the summit vent (8,500 feet or 2.6 km above sea level) and extending a few miles to the SW.

Emissions had declined in webcam images by 21:01 AKDT. Clear satellite views from 21:20 AKDT (12 Jul 2016 05:20 UTC) show no evidence of ash emissions.

A return to more robust eruptive activity remains possible and could occur with little or no warning.
