Earthquake swarm detected under Galeras volcano, Colombia


Colombian authorities are reporting significantly increased seismic activity under Galeras volcano, one of Colombia's most frequently active volcanos. Increased seismicity was first recorded on May 29 and June 2, 2018. The last eruption of this volcano took place in 2014 (VEI 2).

Earthquakes are located between 1 and 8 km (0.6 - 5 miles) to the northeast of the volcano at depths between 1.2 and 7.5 km (0.7 and 6 miles) from the top of the volcano (4 200 m / 12 800 feet a.s.l.), the Colombian Geological Service (SGC) reported in a special bulletin published 04:35 UTC today.

A total of 310 earthquakes have been reported between 09:35 UTC on June 12 when a M4.5 volcano-tectonic earthquake was recorded and 04:35 UTC today. Other geophysical and geochemical monitoring parameters have no significant changes.


The Alert Level remains at III (Yellow; "changes in the behavior of volcanic activity") since 2011.
