Thursday Apr 26, 2007 01:16 AM | BY: TOBIAS
IG reported that during 17-18 April, Strombolian activity from Tungurahua was observed; incandescent material was ejected about 500 m above the summit and blocks descended down the flanks. Lahars carring large blocks NW down the Mandur gorge caused a road closing on 19 April. During 17-24 April, ash plumes rose to altitudes of 5.5-9 km (18,000-29,500 ft) a.s.l. and drifted W and N. Ashfall was reported from areas mainly to the N, NW, W, and SW during 17, 19, 21-22, and 24 April. On 23 April, lahars were observed in several gorges to the NW. Clouds occasionally inhibited views of the summit during the reporting period.
