Tungurahua volcano is still considered one of the most active volcanoes in Ecuador.
On Sunday afternoon November 27, and after four months of relative calm, the “Colossus” again activated. The Technical Tungurahua Volcano Observatory (OVT) ensures that in the closing hours, emissions of ash have been continuous and incandescence and bearing blocks were seen coming from inside the volcano.
Last Friday night there were rains and several mudslides.
The authorities have announced to tourists not to approach the ravines, volcanic flanks and mouths because they are areas of potential involvement.
Daniel Andrade, head of the OVT turn, explained that there is a lot of material deposited on the volcano’s crater that could come off, pushed by pyroclastic flows.
