Rumblings at San Cristobal

Some news of a series of small eruptions at San Cristobal in Nicaragua. Ash from the small explosions drifted to a town near the volcano, however officials for Ineter in Nicaragua say that there is little chance of a large eruption.

San Cristobal is one of the seven active volcanoes in Nicaragua. It has a long record of small eruptions, with at least one every year in the 21st century (and beyond). The largest eruption in recent times was in 1999 that produced lahars and an explosive eruptions (landing us at VEI 2).
