More activity at Galeras


Galeras, in Colombia, appears to have entered a new cycle of activity as it has erupted for the second time in a week. A large explosion occurred this morning that was accompanied by falling ash and rocks (ballistic bombs) from the event. It is unclear how far the volcanic products travelled from the vent, but Colombian officials did raise the alert level back to red and ordered new evacuations.

  1. Galeras sure seems to have a pattern of erupting with minimal warning; the most famous example being the eruption that killed several members of a geological tour group.
