Ecuador records 125 explosions of Tungurahua volcano

Ecuador, S.A.
ECUADOR recorded 125 moderate explosions of the Tungurahua volcano in center of the Andes Sunday. "The volcanic activities continue with a high seismic level, mainly characterized by moderate explosions." There are also 32 earthquakes inside the mountain and continuous shocks 17 times. The ash emissions have caused an ash rain in Pillate and Guadalupe near the volcano. At the same time, those emissions have formed 3-km-high clouds. The volcano began its current eruptive process in November 1999 and since then has alternated between frequent activity and calmness.
