The Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP) released a video of one of the explosions that have occurred since Sunday in the Ubinas volcano, located in Moquegua. In the recording, you can see how the ash is spread through the area surrounding the crater.
Orlando Macedo, Arequipa IGP representative, said that so far and since Sunday were six explosions, each less intense than the last, all caused by heavy snowfall in the country's south.
"This has happened for years. The water contact with the hot part has caused the explosions and as much water that continues to flow, there are repeated explosions, "he said when interviewed by the correspondent of The Trade Area, Carlos Zanabria.
