Tungurahua volcano (Ecuador), activity update

Saturday Nov 11, 2006 08:29 AM | DOOR: TOM PFEIFFER

Over the past weeks, weak to moderate activity continued at Tungurahua volcano. A number of smaller explosions produced plumes consisting of steam, gas, and moderate ash that reached altitudes of 1-3 km (3,300-9,800 ft) a.s.l. and drifted in multiple directions.
On 2 November incandescent blocks were expelled from the summit and rolled about 700 m down the W and E flanks. Nighttime incandescence was observed during 2-4 November.
On 6 November, ash plumes rose to 6 km (19,700 ft) a.s.l. and drifted NW. Ashfall was reported from several towns downwind of the plumes on 5 and 6 November, including Bilbao (8 km W), Cotaló (13 km NW), and Manzano (8 km SW).
