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. ... [more]
