Saw it on CNN - Breaking News but there is no info yet. The Source is the main Colombian newspaper (in spanish).

It seems they've been monitoring the situation very closely and have shelters prepared for everyone. This volcano is located over the Andes mountains at the south-west of the country, with a 400.000 people city near-by with low threat level. Lets hope nothing big happens.

Cheers

WOW , that's a new one, 'Restricted Post'??

Now I'm interested lol

Galeras (Urcunina among the 16th-century indigenous people) is an Andean stratovolcano in the Colombian department of Nariño, near the departmental capital Pasto. Its summit rises 4,276 metres (14,029 ft) above sea level. It has erupted frequently since the Spanish conquest, with its first historical eruption being recorded on December 7, 1580.[2] A 1993 eruption killed nine people, including six scientists who had descended into the volcano's crater to sample gases.[3] It is currently the most active volcano in Colombia.

BOGOTA — Colombian officials on Wednesday raised the alert on the Galeras volcano to "red," the highest level, and ordered the evacuation of 8,000 people after it began spewing smoke and ash.
The small eruption, which was not an explosion, occurred at 4:00 am (0900 GMT), officials said.
Martha Calvache, under director of the state geological service, said the volcano is "emitting ash, and lava has been detected in the crater."
"The volcano is in a very unstable phase," she said.

Well... the source from El Tiempo newspaper or CNN has copyright problems. I'll just post again without them.
