Columbian authorities have ordered the evacuation of 9000 people living on the slopes of Galeras volcano near the border with Ecuador, after monitoring scientists warned of that the volcano might erupt again soon.
Galeras last had a minor eruption November 2004, wich caused little effect on the surrounding populations. In 1993, a small eruption inside the crater had made Galera infamous, because it killed 10 scientists who had climbed up to its crater and were surprised by the eruption during their stay.
