Reventador volcano, Ecuador: news & activity updates
Reventador volcano (Ecuador): lava flow eruption continues

Explosive eruption from Reventador volcano yesterday (image: IGEPN)
The effusive-explosive eruption of the volcano continues and remains essentially unchanged.
IGEPN reported that explosive activity continues from the active crater with near-constant ash emissions that rose 1,640 ft-3,280 ft (500 m-1,000 m) above the crater and drifted into various directions, but most often W-NW direction.
Incandescent material is being ejected to an approximate height of 500 meters above the crater and caused avalanches of material.
The lava flow on the northeast flank remains active, currently about 400 m long.
