Unrest detected at Isluga volcano

Monday Oct 15, 2012 10:05 AM | BY: T

Some signs of unrest have been discovered at Isluga volcano in horthern Chile at the border with Bolivia. The Volcano Observatory of the Southern Andes (OVDAS) belonging to the National Service of Geology and Mining (SERNAGEOMIN) installed 2 seismic stations at the volcano and recorded some seismic events. Moreover, steaming fumaroles and a smell of sulfur were noticed.
OVDAS thinks that there is no immediate risk of volcanic activity, but issued a preventive warning for the Colchane commune in the Tarapacá Region.
