Doubleheader day for volcanic eruptions

Italy's Etna volcano and Colombia's Galeros

25 Aug 10 - Eight thousand people living near Colombia's Galeros volcano were evacuated as INGEOMINAS moved the alert status at the volcano to "Red".  Some of the latest reports from Colombia (Spanish) indicate that the eruption is "ongoing" but "under control," and areas around the volcano are experiencing some ash fall.

Another eruption imminent

Diego Gomez from the Pasto Observatory of Vulcanology and Seismology said that due to the atypical, non-explosive eruption, another eruption is imminent. If that happens, you can watch it here.

Etna - 25 Aug 2010

Italy's Etna also erupted yesterday, less than a week after Boris Behncke's great series on the volcano. The Istituto Nazionale di Geosifica e Vulcanologia (INGV) has a great post on the event (italian and english) on their website with pictures and thermal images of the ash-rich explosion that produced the 1-km tall plume. This is the largest explosive event this summer from the Bocca Nuova ("New Mouth?") vent. Luckily there is an Etna webcam as well.

"These are two big bad boys we could do without," says Eddie. "Weather patterns are perturbed enough by volcanic aerosols."
