The eruption of Mt. Nevado del Ruiz on May 23, 2016 led to the closure of the regional airport in West Columbia La Nubia. The ash column rose more than 2.3 kilometers above the volcano peak. Authorities decided to close the airport of Manizales, capital of Caldas State, for safety reasons.

A bit of history:

On November 13, 1985, the Nevado del Ruiz volcano erupted in Colombia. Pyroclastic flows exploding from the crater melted the mountain’s icecap, forming lahars (volcanic mudflows and debris flows) which cascaded into river valleys below. One lahar, consisting of three pulses, did most of the damage. Traveling at 20 ft per second, the first pulse enveloped most of the town of Armero, killing up to 20,000 people. In total 23,000 people were killed and 13 villages in addition to Armero were destroyed.

The volcanic unrest continues and nobody knows when it is going to stop!
