Yesterday morning the Tungurahua volcano produced small explosions accompanied by pyroclastic flow, which went down to almost half of the cone, reaching the Hacienda creek.
At nearly 5:30am a pool of lava could be seen which rose about 200 meters and also caused a small pyroclastic flow.
In this way, the so-called “Colossus”, which on Friday began a new cycle in its eruptive process of thirteen years, remained yesterday with continuous emissions of gas and ash which varied between low and high.
Alexandra Alvarado,of the technical Geophysics Institute said the volcano continues with sporadic explosions accompanied with loud roars. The height of the emissions was between two and three kilometers above the crater.
Also, during yesterday morning, the wind direction changed from northeast to southwest and then west, affecting populations that didn’t suffered damage before.
