Eruptive Activity at Tungurahua Volcano Decreases

QUITO - The eruptive activity of the Ecuadorian Tungurahua volcano, located in the Tungurahua province, reduced its intensity while maintaining a constant column of ash.

The emission column, with a moderate to high contents of ash, reached about two miles above the crater and headed towards the east, although experts believe that it has reduced the danger to surrounding areas.

Incandescent blocks associated to the activity of the volcano of 1.029 meters of altitude roll down the flanks of the volcano.

As of Saturday afternoon, a decline of the intensity has been registered in the activity of this volcano which had earlier forced to declare a red alert and the evacuation of residents and tourists of nearby areas.

The Tungurahua, located south of Quito, has been active since 1999, according to director of the Geophysical Institute Hugo Yépez.
