Volcano Eruption in Ecuador

(Quito, Ecuador)
A volcano has spewed a six-mile column of ash into the sky after a massive eruption.

The Tungurahua volcano in Ecuador erupted twice yesterday night.

Ecuador's geophysics institute said the first blast occurred at 6.10pm local time and was followed by a second, four-minute explosion and five lesser tremors.

The 16,480-foot volcano, nearly 90 miles south of Quito, revived on February 1, with eruptions that affected a third of Ecuador's provinces and temporarily closed a regional airport.
One must wonder if the eruption will add to global warming.

So far no video of the actual FIRST explosion, just smoke and flames.
