GENERAL INFORMATIONS
If the rains become more intense in the volcano area, they can re-mobilize deposits from pyroclastic flows and generate lahars. For this reason, we recommend extreme caution when driving on roads and highways that cross the gorge through which these flows are down and the regions which in the past have been affected by this kind of phenomenon
