Reventador volcano, Ecuador: new eruption
Reventador Volcano in Ecuador has started to erupt again on Tuesday. According to Hugo Yepez, director of Geophysics Institute of the National Polytechnical School (IGEPN), a lava flow inside the crater has appeared. There is an increased possibility of explosive events in the near future.
Reventador, 3,485 meters high, is a symmetrical stratovolcano that had a major explosion on November 3, 2002, when a thick layer of ash reached the capital Quito.
