This appears to have happened two months ago, so it's old news.

Is this a current erruption? I can't find any current news releases about it errupting today. I can only find stories from two months ago.

I found this for yesterday's date.

Tungurahua volcano (Ecuador) activity update
Current seismic signal from Tungurahua (RETU station, IG)
Current seismic signal from Tungurahua (RETU station, IG)
The volcano continues to be restless with moderate seismic activity. Short emissions occurred occasionally during the past days, but most of them were inferred by seismic signals and could not be observed directly due to cloud cover.
Minor ashfall was reported in El Manzano (8 km SW) and Cahuaji on 26 March. Seismicity was at moderate levels and then declined during 28 March-1 April. Lahars on 31 March traveled down the Vascún (N) and Mapayacu (SW) drainages, carrying blocks up to 1 m in diameter in the latter drainage (from the latest Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report).

Separate event, this is a new eruption.

Ahh, ok. The media, as usual, seems a day late and a dollar short on this event.

Wow. That whole region is one big seismic nuke going off right now.

From the Geophysical Institute in Ecuador:


Today, April 4 at 18:10 (local time), the monitoring network of the Geophysical Institute reported a loud explosion with a duration of 5 minutes generated pyroclastic flows that descended the streams of northwestern and northern flank of the volcano ( Vascún streams, Pyramid, etc.).

The initial column reached 10 km above the level of the crater and its main direction was toward the southwest. Another pulse was recorded at 18:16 with a duration of 4 minutes with other possible generation of pyroclastic flows. From 18:24 one continuous emission tremor that lasts until the publication of this newsletter (19:00 local time) is recorded.

So far, there are reports drop in Bilbao and Cusúa gravel and ash Píllaro. on this day five explosions were generated moderate size.

The staff of the Tungurahua Volcano Observatory (OVT) and the Geophysical Institute in Quito remains attentive to changes in the activity of the volcano.

You can also see the eruption on the spectrograms here. Station RETU is the nearest to Tungurahua. It begins on the 4th, just after 23:00 UTC.

Something is brewing underneath that whole area of South America with quakes and volcanoes going off. If we could only peer into the Earth's mantle and outer core to see what is happening.

You're right.. according to that and the reports leading up to that recent one? It looks ongoing and happening now.

RSOE shows nothing on it.

You know how it is...there just distractions from the mother load brewing in Yellowstone

I am waiting to see if any EQs come out of there now. There is nothing showing on the USGS site, but I would imagine it had to of registered from looking at the size of the eruption in pictures.

Wouldn't it?

Anyone know?

nothing on this quake display either. It aggregates from the main ones, so it should show something?

Is that Geo institute not official as it appears?

* Greece got a 5.7 about 7hrs ago by that. Hmm...

Dam it erupted so hard it knocked the world sideways.

Based on recent events over the past few years, in terms of the volcanoes/earthquakes we've seen in Japan, Alaska, California, Chile, Peru and now Ecuador, I suspect the Earth is expressing herself vis-a-vis Johnny Cash:

If I'm reading that correctly, that flow is really rocking hardcore from 1 to about 3 or 4 hertz with bands running up to 7 or 8 hz.

That's some serious rumble.

Looks like they will have more data to compare fo this study:


Abstract
Four earthquakes with Mw ≥ 8 occurred in proximity to 60 Holocene volcanoes, in the Southern Volcanic Zone of the Andes (SVZ) since 1906. We analyzed these events by numerical modeling and field data to understand the key attributes of each volcano that may lead to a seismically-triggered eruption and the general mechanisms by which earthquakes could trigger volcanic new activity. We developed a new approach by resolving the earthquake-induced normal static stress change on the magma pathway of each volcano instead of considering the general crustal volume. We also considered other parameters that may lead to eruption, such as magma chamber depth, magma composition and viscosity, local tectonic settings and volcano dimension. The dataset includes a total of 18 new volcanic activities following large earthquakes (15 eruptions and 3 minor increases in volcanic activity) at 10 volcanoes. Of these, 9 out of 18 events representing unrest occurred at volcanoes that had no activity in the five years before the earthquake.

Haha...thanks for letting me know that's what happened. I thought it was a symptom of my Friday night wine!
