BREAKING: Eruption underway at Nicaragua's San Cristobal volcano
[link to news.bnonews.com]

From the BNO Newsroom.

CHINANDEGA, Nicaragua (BNO NEWS) -- Fresh activity has been recorded at Nicaragua's highest volcano, according to the U.S. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center on Sunday, saying an eruption is underway.

The San Cristobal Volcano is located near the towns of Chichigalpa and Chinandega, which have a combined population of more than 333,000.

"We have received information suggesting a possible VA (Volcanic Ash) emission," said an initial statement from the U.S. Volcanic Ash Advisory around 7 p.m. EDT.

A second advisory from the center, around 7.20 p.m. EDT, confirmed an eruption was underway and said an explosion was recorded at 8.15 p.m. GMT (3.15 p.m. EDT).

The ash is moving towards the west at or below a height of 5 miles. "Ash [is] moving to the west and west-northwest at 10-15 kts (11.5 - 17.2 miles) and extends about 40 nautical miles (46 miles) west of the volcano," the advisory read.

The San Cristobal is one of the more active volcanoes in the country, but eruptions are usually small. Its last small eruption was reported in 2008, but a large eruption occurred in 1999.

good going Hand of Man, you got it first. have at it with the thread.

I think it's good to take a break from riot doom and economy doom and Glenn Beck doom for the good old natural disaster doom.
