Tungurahua volcano news & eruption updates:
Tungurahua volcano (Ecuador) activity update
Thursday Feb 20, 2014 17:22 PM | BY: T
Explosion from Tungurahua yesterday evening
Overall, the volcano's visible activity has continued to decrease with fewer and weaker explosions, although seismic activity remains moderate to high. The strongest explosion in the past days was one yesterday evening that produced an ash column rising 3 km, a powerful cannon-shot explosion sound. Bombs fell around the crater at distances of 500 m.
Tuesday, Feb 18, 2014
After the major eruptions on 1 Feb, the volcano continued to produce frequent (comparably) smaller explosions of strombolian to vulcanian type, sometime causing small pyroclastic flows. Ash falls have been mainly affecting areas in Penipe, south of the volcano. During the past days, activity has been decreasing overall. ...
Monday, Feb 10, 2014
Activity of the volcano remains intense, but the style of the eruption has changed towards near continuous ash emissions as opposed to discrete, but potentially much more violent explosions. The ash plume still rises up to 4 km above Tungurahua's summit at times. ...
Thursday, Feb 06, 2014
The volcano continues to be very active with frequent explosions that eject incandescent lava to several hundred meters height and ash plumes rising up to 3-4 km above the summit. ...
Tuesday, Feb 04, 2014
Activity remains elevated. The volcano emits a constant ash and steam column rising up to 4-5 km, and has strong individual explosions with loud detonations like cannon-shots. ...
Monday, Feb 03, 2014
Activity at the volcano continues at similar levels as yesterday with intermittent small to moderately large explosions, producing ash plumes of up to 4 km height. ...
