IG reported that during 1-7 July, explosions from Tungurahua were detected by the seismic network. Cloud cover inhibited visual observations during most days. On 1 July, an ash plume rose to an altitude of 7 km (23,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted W. During 4-6 July, explosions were heard. On 6 July, ashfall was reported in areas to the W and NW and incandescent blocks rolled 500 m down the flanks. On 7 July, explosions rattled windows in areas to the W, NW, and NE; ashfall was reported to the W.
