Nevado del Ruiz volcano (Colombia): magnitude 2.9 earthquake

Thursday Feb 18, 2016 12:05 PM | DOOR: T

Location of the M2.9 earthquake under Nevado del Ruiz on 17 Feb 2016
Location of the M2.9 earthquake under Nevado del Ruiz on 17 Feb 2016
A shallow earthquake of magnitude 2.9 occurred under the volcano at 17:22 local time yesterday (17 Feb), the Manizales volcano observatory reported. The event could be felt by the local population.
During 9-15 February seismicity at Nevado del Ruiz was characterized by long-period earthquakes and pulses of volcanic tremor associated with gas-and-ash emissions. Earthquakes occurred at depths between 1 and 7.6 km. The largest event was recorded at 0857 on 10 February; it was a local M 1.1, N of Arenas Crater at a depth of 5.7 km.
Significant amounts of water vapor and gas rose from the crater during the week. A gas, steam, and ash plume rose 1.5 km and drifted NW on 13 February. The Alert Level remained at III (Yellow; "changes in the behavior of volcanic activity").
