Ecuador’s Instituto Geofísico (IG) reports in the Tungurahua daily bulletin for 15 June 2008 (PDF) that a slight increase took place in the volcano’s seismic activity over the preceding 24 hours and that there has been an increase in ash emissions, with ashfall reported south and south-west of the summit. Recent heavy rains have generated lahars, which caused some road closures to the north-west of the volcano. No explosive activity has been reported.
