New eruptions of NaBro volcano canceled flights in East Africa

Volcanic activity has increased at the Nabro volcano in Eritrea, just four days after the stratovolcano sent an ash plume more than 15km into the air. The ash drifted west northwest over Sudan Wednesday evening threatening to bring further disruption to air traffic in

Chile’s volcanic devastating toll on environment

Several Latin American countries in the path of volcanic ash unleashed from a Chilean Andean crater are facing critical shortages of water, agricultural collapse, disruptions in transportation and growing risks to human and animal health. Toxic ash clouds, seen to be
