Nevado del Ruiz volcano news & activity updates

Nevado del Ruiz volcano (Colombia) - alert level lowered to Yellow

Saturday Sep 08, 2012 07:49 AM | DOOR: T

In recent weeks, the volcano has presented a gradual decrease in activity and INGEOMINAS lowered the alert status from "Orange" (eruption likely within days to weeks) to "Yellow" (unrest) on 5 Sep.
Seismicity has remained low overall, with some minor temporary increases of low energy, particularly earthquakes associated with rock fracturing within the volcanic edifice. Also, the volcanic tremor, which is associated with movement of fluids and gases and ash output has been declining in intensity. Moreover, although the levels of sulfur dioxide continue to be elevated, these are smaller than those recorded in the months of May to July. The volcanic deformation continues to show slight changes.
