Tungurahua continues to be the most active volcano in South America. During the past week, near-constant explosive activity produced plumes that rose to altitudes of 7-10 km (23,000-32,800 ft) a.s.l. and drifted mainly W, NW, and N. Ashfall was reported from areas downwind and from areas SW within 8 km, on all days except 25 and 27 March.
Noises resembling "cannon shots" and blocks rolling down the flanks were heard on 21, 22, and 25 March; windows rattled as far away as 11 km N in Guadalupe. On 23 March, lahars traveled mainly down NW gorges and affected the roads between Ambato and Baños, and between Baños and Penipe.

Strong activity continues at Tungurahua. Loud cannon-shot like explosions were observed at Tungurahua volcano. IG reports ash plumes rising to 5-9 km (18,000-30,000 ft) altitude and drifting mainly to the NW and W, where ashfall occurred during 7-8 and 10-13 March. Incandescent bombs were seen ejected and rolling down the flanks during most of the explosions.
