South and Central American Volcanoes Heat Up

A couple recent articles from the Telegraph about volcanoes becoming a bit more active.

First, this December 24, 2012, article indicates that the Copahue volcano, which sits astride the border with Argentina, had erupted on December 22, sending a cloud of ash almost a mile high. Officials initially issued a yellow and, then, orange alert. However, this was raised to red on December 23. The story noted that the volcano had previously erupted in 1991 and 2001.

The second is this story from December 27, 2012, that related that the San Cristobal volcano in Nicaragua had also emitted an ash plume, prompting the government to order an evacuation of residents within a 1.9 mile radius of the volcano.
