Colima volcano, Mexico: new explosion, lahar

Wednesday Jul 06, 2005 10:04 AM | BY: TOM PFEIFFER

On the 5th of July, a new strong explosion took place at Colima volcano (Mexico), producing an ash plume of about 5 km height (3 miles).
On 30 June, 3 lahars caused by mobilized ash deposits descended Barranca La Lumbre and Barranca Montegrande to distances of 10km and 7-8km. No damages to inhabited areas occurred.
