Tunaguarhua volcano (Ecuador), activity update: strong explosions continue

Sunday Nov 18, 2007 10:28 AM |

Tungurahua volcano continues its explosive eruptions producing ash plumes rising to altitudes of 6-9 km (19,700-30,000 ft) a.s.l. Ash ashfall was reported from multiple areas downwind, mainly to the W and SW. Loud roars and "cannon-shot" like detonations are heard in several areas near the volcano. IG reported the passing of a lahar on the SW flank that lasted about 30 minutes on 10 November.
Visual observations include incandescent blocks ejected from the summit and landing on the flanks, rolling down between a few hundred meters and up to a kilometer during the past week.
