Nevado del Ruiz volcano (Colombia): continuing occasional ash emissions
Tuesday Oct 18, 2016 14:09 PM | BY: T
Steam plume with possibly some ash from Nevado del Ruiz this afternoon
Mild ash emissions continue to occur at the volcano every few days or so. Last night, the observatory reported light emissions creating a plume of a few hundred meters height.
The volcano has been in a similar state of instability for about 5 years now. Whether it will calm down or increase its activity to a new magmatic eruption is unknown. The alert level remains at Yellow (third highest) on the Colombian 4 color scale.
