Ecuadorian volcano Cotopaxi’s activity is threatening 325,000 lives.

Cotopaxi Volcano
August 2015 ECUADOR It may have been more than 100 years since Cotopaxi’s last major eruption, but it’s Ecuador’s most active volcano and second tallest, at 19,347 feet. Cotopaxi’s most recent activity was when it shot ash a few kilometers in the air Saturday according to CBC reports. This spit of activity started Friday when the volcano shot ash seven miles high. Top disaster official Maria del Pilar Cornejo told reporters that the effects of ash shooting from the volcano is dependent on winds in the area. Cornejo added that the biggest threat to those around the volcano is the potential for fast-moving mud and rock current.
After the initial rumbling, hundreds of people were evacuated from Cotopaxi’s slopes and Correa placed a prohibition on journalists from reporting information that wasn’t from official sources. Correa claimed this prior restraint to be necessary to guarantee the safety of citizen’s around the volcano. According to Decree 755 signed by Correa Saturday, information reporters use must come from the security ministry’s official bulletins. This was done to rumors and misinformation according to the government. “The most important thing is not to create unnecessary panic in the population, and not to create excessive tranquility either,” Fernando Alvarado, Ecuador’s communication minister, said. –US News and World Report
