Grania caught the volcano in action:
And i was able to get a glimpse of a burp too yesterday.
To quote the uploader of the video linked below ( PartyxxxFunchannel):
Ecuador’s Tungurahua volcano spewed glowing ash and pyroclastic material into the air on Sunday (March 10) as it showed intensified activity for a second day.
Local media on Saturday reported that ash was reaching 2 kilometres into the sky. Tungurahua is a towering 5,023 metres high and lies some 135 kilometres south of the capital city of Quito.
In December, the town of Banos de Agua Santa was covered in a thick layer of volcanic ash, forcing authorities to encourage local residents to evacuate the area.
Tungurahua, which means “Throat of Fire” in the local Quechua language, has been classified as active since 1999, and produced a strong eruption in 2008. It is one of Ecuador’s eight active volcanoes.
Here is a video from March 11 http://iptv.orf.at/stories/2171008/
To watch Tungurahua the Insituto Geofisico EPN provides several camera on their page:
- Cam 1 Guadalupe
- Cam 2 Bayushig
- Cam 3 Pillate
- Cam 4 Juive ( Shows a slope of the volcan)
- Cam 5 Achupashal
- Cam 6 Rutun
- And an animation of all 6 cams on one page.
