Doubleheader day for volcanic
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
Italy's Etna also erupted yesterday,
less than a week after Boris Behncke's
great series on the volcano. The
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.
