Tungurahua Erupts

Tungurahua, whose name in Quechua means "Throat of Fire," has again erupted. Alternet/Reuters reports:

Ecuador on Tuesday closed schools and evacuated towns in areas near Tungurahua, after the volcano spewed ash clouds miles into the air, damaging crops and endangering the health of residents in nearby villages, according to local media. The country's geophysical institute has reported increased volcano activity since last Thursday, and has detected six eruptions so far.
