The crater lake that appeared in early March in the most active volcano in Peru, the Ubinas, in the Moquegua region, began to dry.
An observer from the municipality of Ubinas, Melquiades Alvarez Condori, said Thursday morning April 28, he reached the summit of the volcano and saw with surprise that the size of the lake had decreased.
He further noted that the volcano is calm for the moment, with the exhalations of steam and magmatic gases.
On March 11, the lake was detected. The Volcanological Observatory of Southern Andes explained that this was due to the rain and snow falling continuously.
In early April, the size of the lake began to decline. Now, it remains dry.
Note that rain and snowfall stopped in the Ubinas district, province of Sanchez Cerro.
