Another volcano awoke last Sunday and the Ecuadorian government immediately declared threat level orange. Evacuations yet decided to postpone the hope that before the eruption will not come. Services responsible for emergency warning dissemination spread over the territory of Ecuador’s volcanic ash cloud.

Signs of activity Tungurua started serving since 1999 and to this day periodically disturbed Ecuadorians, but nothing serious in the activity of the volcano has not yet been observed.

While not reported, will affect whether the volcanic activity on air travel in the region, and whether suspended flights because of the spreading in the atmosphere at Ecuador volcano dust.
