Tungurahua, Ecuador

IG reported that on 2 June, two small explosions from Tungurahua were detected by the seismic network and ashfall was reported in areas on the SW flank. During 3-9 June, both activity at the summit and seismicity declined significantly. Ash-and-steam plumes rose to an altitude of 5.2 km (17,100 ft) a.s.l. during 4-5 June and drifted W and SW. A steam plume was visible on 8 June. Cloudy weather inhibited visual observations on other days during 3-10 June.
