The Ecuadorian volcano Sangay keeps the local press busy, as it continues to be active and once ventured out of its cloud cover. On pictures you can see that on the southern flank of the volcano a deep channel has been created, through which lava flows and pyroclastic flows flow. In addition, the sangay is explosively active and promotes volcanic ash. The VAAC registered it today at an altitude of 6000 m. The ash drifts in a westerly direction. Media reports say that ash clouds have risen up to 870 m above crater height. Lahars now pose a permanent threat and influence the hydrology of the river landscape at the foot of the mighty volcano. Sangay is located at the edge of the Amazon basin, in one of the wettest regions on earth.
