The Institute of Geophysics of Peru recorded an explosion in the crater of the Ubinas volcano, the institute said in a statement.
“The Peruvian Institute of Geophysics reports that today, September 3, at 15.58 local time (23.58 Moscow time), an explosion was recorded in the crater of the Ubinas volcano,” the institute said on Twitter.
According to the Institute, as a result of the explosion, a pillar of ash 1.3 kilometers high was thrown in the south and south-east directions.
“It is possible that new explosions and emissions of ash can occur. Given this, the institute recommends maintaining an orange warning level in the volcano zone, and we urge the authorities to take precautions to avoid the health risks of residents living in these areas,” Institute experts.
As the institute recalls, the last time an explosion in the crater of the Ubinas volcano was recorded on July 22 of this year.
