Tungurahua lighting up



One of the region's most active volcanoes (last seen smoking and belching in 2013, the geological equivalent of 5 minutes ago), Tungurahua in Ecuador has registered pyroclastic flows and some pretty deep explosions in the last few hours (Google News Spanish page on the thing here). In the last few minutes the government has emitted an orange alert and said there has been an "important increase" in eruptions and activity.
