Peru volcano rumbles to life after 40 years sending locals looking for shelter

Locals are ready to evacuate if needed

One of the scariest forms of natural disasters is the volcano. The thought of hot gas, ash, and molten rock destroying homes and taking lives is a very disturbing thought indeed. A volcano located in Peru has sat dormant for 40 years. Late last year the volcano rumbled back to life and started to throw ash into the air reports The Inquisitor.

That volcano continues to be active and has recently sent locals looking for shelter.

“We are readying a shelter for refugees from the blasts,” said Pascual Coaquira, mayor of the nearby town of Ubinas. Adding that the whole region was on alert. “The volcano has been emitting a lot of ash all day, the people in the town (of Ubinas) are having some problems breathing.”

The ash eruption occurred at 7:42am local time and the ash quickly spread around the region.

“The wind has blown towards the south, to the residents of Querapi, four kilometers from the crater, and the district of Ubinas, located at six kilometers,” said Macedo.

The eruption is no surprise for the locals, they had been warned that lava was building up in recent weeks by the nation's geological and mining agency. Residents had been warned to be ready to evacuate if needed. Peru has about 40 volcanoes with most of them dormant. One village only a few miles from the base of the volcano is in the process of being permanently moved.
