Galeras volcano (Columbia), eruption news: strong explosion on 12 July

Четверг июл 13, 2006 15:51 | АВТОР: TOM PFEIFFER

Galeras volcano had a strong explosive eruption on 12 July at 10h58 local time, producing an ash plume reaching 12 km altitude. The event was followed by two further explosions at 14h36 and 21h02 local time. 
Ash falls were reported in the localities of  La Florida, Ancuyá, Sandoná and Consacáes. Authorities started to evacuate about 10,000 people from the areas nearest to the volcano.
The eruption was preceded by a relatively calm period of lava dome growth interupted only by a weak explosion on 9 July accompanied by a minor swarm of earthquakes.
The events mark Galeras' typical trend of erupting and have been expected by scientists of the monitoring institute INGEOMINAS. A pdf report about the eruption can be downloaded from their website.
