A report in the Peruvian paper La Primera today says that activity at Ubinas is increasing, and that the emissions of gas and ash from the volcano are causing increasingly serious problems for local residents. Gas emissions and ashfall are damaging grasslands, leaving cattle with nothing to eat and affecting the livelihoods of around 800 people in the nearby districts of Querapi, Ubinas and Sacoaya.

Damage caused by volcanic emissions to local crops and pasture is a recurrent problem at Ubinas.

Eruptions at Ubinas, Peru 3 May 2008

Two small eruptions took place at Ubinas volcano in Peru yesterday, 2 May 2008, projecting ash and gas to an altitude of 500 metres and causing alarm in neighbouring villages. Local reports spoke of ash being deposited on houses and crops. This activity brought to an end a week of calm at the volcano.

The possible evacuation of 45 families from the immediate vicinity of Ubinas is being considered by the provincial emergencies committee, reports El Comercio today, but as there would be no money to feed the evacuees, nothing has been done.

Peru: Ubinas makes people sick 25 April 2008

Posted by admin in activity reports, eruptions, natural hazards, Peru, Ubinas.

Peru’s most active volcano, Ubinas, has been in eruption since March 2006, and is currently going through an increase in activity. The gas currently being produced by the volcano is making hundreds of people in neighbouring areas sick, according to reports in the Peruvian media. The inhabitants of the districts of Querapi, Ubinas and Sacoaya are complaining of headaches and respiratory illnesses.

El Comercio reports that Ubinas’s emissions and ash cloud affects an area within 50 kilometres radius of the volcano, and that ash fall is causing alarm in surrounding districts. An investigative commission from Moquegua Region will be visiting the area today to assess the extent of the problems being caused by the volcano, and to test local drinking water supplies. In an earlier report, El Comercio quoted a civil defence authority warning that ash may have affected cattle pasture, which may lead to shortages of food locally.

Scientists from the Instituto Geológico, Minero y Metalúrgico (Ingemmet), Instituto Geofísico del Perú (IGP) and the Instituto Geofísico of the Universidad Nacional San Agustín de Arequipa maintain constant monitoring of the volcano. Ingemmet reports that Ubinas’s activity is increasing, with three explosions on 23 April producing a 1.6-kilometre eruption column.
