Colombia Nevado De Ruiz Volcano on Track Toward Another Eruption

Authorities in Colombia are showing concerns of an imminent eruption at the towering Columbia Nevado De Ruiz volcano.

Gas and vapor has been rising periodically from the Nevado de Ruiz volcano since February and the country’s geology institute says people in some areas are reporting “strong odors of sulfur.”

As of Friday, no evacuations have been ordered around the 17,457-foot (5,321-meter) volcano which roughly lies 90 miles (145 kilometers) west of the country’s capital, Bogota.

A 1985 eruption wiped out the town of Armero, Columbia killing 25,000 people.

Let’s hope they begin evacuations soon…better safe than sorry…again.
