The eruptions of the Tungurahua volcano in Huambalo, Ecuador, increased around the 21st August. The volcano is 140 kilometres away from Ecuador’s capital city of Quito. The media has reported that 110 families were evacuated from the area. Volcano Discovery is now reporting that despite the clouds of ash, some landslides, floods and earthquakes, it appears that the eruptions have decreased. This volcano has erupted two to three times over the past three years.
