Ash emission from Ubinas this afternoon
The volcano's activity increases. As more magma arrives to build up the new lava dome in the summit crater, more gasses are being released as well and cause near-constant explosive activity with moderately strong ash emissions at the moment (see video).

VAAC Buenos Aires reported an ash plume at 28,000 ft (8 km) altitude drifting NW.

Explosion at Ubinas yesterday (IGP)
Activity at the volcano has been increasing over the past week, both the number and size of explosions and the corresponding seismic activity. Explosions on 9 April produced ash plumes that reached up to 3 km height, which is a significant increase compared to the smaller ones that had been occurring previously with 1.5-2 km tall plumes. Light ash fall occurred in areas to the NE, in areas up to 20 km distance including the villages Lloque, Chojata, and Ichuna. ... read all
