Colima volcano (Mexico) July 2015 photos: evacuations and Monte Grande pyroclastic flow
Impressions from the evacuated area near San Antonio and La Yerbabuena (west side), affected only by ash fall, and the still hot deposit of the unusually large pyroclastic flow from 11 July, near Monte Grande on the southern slope. The images were taken only 3 days after it had been deposited. Miraculously, no human victims were claimed, but many livestock were lost. The deposit will pose a significant lahar hazard during heavy rainfalls to come.
