Volcano erupts on island in Lake Nicaragua

Nicaraqua, C.A.
The Concepcion volcano sent huge columns of ash into the sky in eruptions that prompted a ripple of small earthquakes. The volcano, one of two on an island in the region's largest lake, erupted Saturday night and related earthquakes continued to rattle the area on Sunday. No one was injured by the blast. The volcano is located 100 kilometers (60 miles) southeast of the capital, Managua, on an island popular with adventure tourists in Lake Nicaragua, Central America's largest lake. Ash rained down on local communities on Sunday, and strong winds carried it toward the capital.
