It’s not even a week away that the Colima and Turrialba volcanoes erupted violently.

And yesterday again they covered surrounding municipalities with ash after strong explosions. The Bulusan volcano also shows enhanced activity patterns.

The Colima continues its activity with some photogenic explosions yesterday, Oct. 18th.

Mexico’s Colima volcano erupted three times (5:58, 11:04 and 12:18 ET) on Tuesday, spewing plumes of ash and smoke into the sky.

The last explosion sent ash to a height of at least 2,000 meters above the crater heading towards southeast.

A viscous lava flow is moving at very low speed along the south side of the volcanic peak.

Local volcanologists recently selected sample of lava to investigate its chemical properties and better understand the undergoing extreme activity phase, which began very suddenly and very quickly.

After a slight decrease in activity, the Turrialba came furiously to life on Oct 16th at 7pm local time.

Cloud cover did not allow a continuous observation of this event, which lasted at least 9 minutes on the onsite seismographs.

A plume of gas and ash reached about 1,000 meters above the crater.

The Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) is maintained at 4 km. It was extended by 2km to encompass Mapaso, San Roque and Patag due to phreatic eruption hazards.
