El Misti in Peru May Be Reawakening for the First Time in Centuries.

El Misti in Peru May Be Reawakening for the First Time in Centuries.
The OVS/IG-Peru released a statement this week about the current rumbling at El Misti. The volcano is beginning to show more signs of a potential renewal of eruptive activity, which would be its first since the 15th century. There have been several periods of very intense fumarolic activity at the volcano since that 15th century event, but Peruvian officials are taking no chances as almost 1 million people live within 30 kilometers of the volcano. This statement was meant to be a reminder to the people living in Arequipa that they live next to a potentially active volcano, so they should plan accordingly by not building onto the sides of the volcano or within drainages leading from the volcano. They also remind officials that plans for evacuations should be ready if the need arises. If anything does begin to happen, you can check out an OVI webcam of El Misti.
