Galeras volcano, Colombia: increased seismic activity
Friday Aug 26, 2005 02:46 AM | BY: SUSANA TAMAYO
"Dozens of small earthquakes near a volcano in southwest Colombia were raising concerns Sunday of a possible eruption. More than 30 temblors have occurred within 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) of the Galeras volcano beginning Saturday Aug. 20, geologist Roberto Torres said. Several had a magnitude near 5 and seven were strong enough to be felt by people."
Galeras volcano is an active "4270-m high andesitic stratovolcano in the southwestern Colombia near the border to Ecuador" whose activity in May 2005 prompted the Colombia government to evacuate the area.
