Tungurahua, Ecuador

IG reported that although visual observations were very limited due to cloud cover, ash-and-steam and ash plumes from Tungurahua were spotted and rose to altitudes of 5.2-7 km (17,100-23,000 ft) a.s.l. during 12-18 March. Ash plumes drifted SW, W, NW, NE, and E; ashfall was reported in areas downwind (SW, W, and NW) on 13, 14, 16, and 18 March.
