Eruption of Tungurahua on 4 April 18:10 (F. Vásconez - OVT/IGEPN)
Tungurahua (Ecuador): (5 Apr) The volcano entered a new vigorous eruptive phase yesterday evening. A moderately strong vulcanian explosion occurred at 18:10 (local time) and produced an eruption column rising several kilometers as well as small pyroclastic flows on the cone.
The eruption plume (originally estimated to have reached up to 50,000 ft / 15 km altitude, but probably much lower than that) drifted to westerly directions. Ash / lapilli fall with 1-3 cm diameter clasts occurred in the areas of Bilbao, Choglontus, Chacauco and Cusúa.
