The San Cristobal volcano, also known as El Viejo (the old guy) is the oldest volcano in Nicaragua. Today, April 22, 2016, the volcanic peak erupted in 3 large explosions at 10:20 am, 10:22 am and 10:27 am. Volcanic unrest along the Ring of Fire.

The fire is spreading rapidly along the Ring! After Guatemala, it's now the San Cristobal volcano in Nicaragua that registered three explosions generating a plume of gas and ash.

The cameras monitoring the activity of the volcano (INETER) recorded images of the strongest explosion at 10:27 am today:

The three loud explosions were followed by a rain of ash on the communities surrounding the volcano.

In Chichigalpa residents reported a strong ashfall after the eruption.

So far, no major damage has been reported, but residents fear a continued activity of the colossus.

The Ring of Fire is increasing in activity and that could have a really bad ending!

Just be prepared for the worst case!
