A new phase of ash emissions began on the evening of 4 Oct. The volcano started to emit near continuous ash plumes, interrupted by strong degassing phases, from the active El Agrio crater. Seismic activity according to SERNAGEOMIN has been low suggesting that the origin of the new eruptions is phreatic, i.e. driven by steam explosions rather than fresh magma rising to the surface. ...more [read all]
