OLLZ station seismogramm showing the (black) signal at 20:02 possibly indicating an ash emission
At 20:02 (Local time) on 30 July, the Manizales oservatory observed a seismic signal probably reflecting an ash eruption from Nevado del Ruiz. The signal was similar to those recorded on 10 and 19 April and 22 May 2012 when ash eruptions occurred. Seismic activity at Nevado del Ruiz is elevated and the volcano is producing an important SO2 plume.
