Cotopaxi (Ecuador): Ash emissions have been increasing and producing plumes that rose 2 km above the summit and drifted west for over 50 km.
Ash fall occurred in several populated areas including Mulalo, Chaupi, Lasso, Machachi, Aloag, Tambillo.
According to Ministry of Security, evacuation routes and over 120 "albergues" - shelters - have been prepared to accommodate people in case evacuations become necessary.
