Wolf volcano eruption news & activity updates

Wolf volcano (Galapagos Islands): possible very large eruption

Monday May 25, 2015 11:55 AM | BY: T

Ash plumes from Wolf volcano (VAAC Washington)
Ash plumes from Wolf volcano (VAAC Washington)
A large eruption might have started at the largest volcano of the Galapagos Islands - Volcán Wolf on the northern end of the archipelago's biggest island Isabela.
Updates
Starting this morning at 08:04 UTC, Washington Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) has issued several alerts of ash plumes reaching up to 35-50,000 ft from the volcano, based on GOES-EAST satellite imagery.
The latest report< from 10:38 UTC (about an hour ago), i.e. mentions a high-altitude ash plume moving ENE at 50,000 ft at 30 knots, while a lower portion of the plume is moving south at 45,000 ft altitude. If the observed plume is in fact from an eruption, it should by now be extending more than 150 km distance and soon picked up by other satellite data.
Strangely, no other news about a new, and obviously very large eruption have become available so far.
