Melquiades Alvarez, an observer from the District Municipality of Ubinas, identifies in his recent visit to the massif , a small lake at the base of the crater of Ubinas volcano, which have formed as a result of recent rainfall in the entire area around this mountain .
This phenomenon was released through the personal Facebook account of Mr. Alvarez, who is a regular contributor to the OVS in various field work that the Observatory takes over the volcano.
“This is the first time since the beginning of the current eruptive process of Ubinas in September 2013, that the accumulation of water in large quantities is observed at the base of the crater. This small lagoon is a result of constant rain and snow that have taken place in this area in recent weeks, “said Dr. Orlando Macedo, director of the OVS.
It should be noted that the Ubinas volcano maintains a moderate level of seismic activity associated with a slight pressure buildup inside this massif, a situation which the OVS not rule out the occurrence of future exhalations and / or explosions of low to medium magnitude.
