Tungurahua volcano (Ecuador) activity update: occasional explosions, steam and ash venting

Thursday May 17, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T

IG reported that during 9-15 May visual observations of Tungurahua were often limited due to cloud cover.
On 10 May a steam plume with low ash content rose 200 m above the crater and drifted W. Seismicity increased on 12 May. Explosions caused windows to vibrate in areas near the volcano. Sounds resembling blocks rolling down the flanks as well as roaring noises were reported. A plume with low ash content rose 2-3 km above the crater and drifted W and NW. The next day a plume rose 200 m above the crater and drifted W.
