The Colombian Geological Service (SGC) reported this Tuesday that as part of the monitoring of the activity of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano, it was decided to change the level of volcanic activity from orange to yellow, since the colossus presents a gradual decrease in several of the parameters.

"After 89 days at the orange level of activity, the volcano has returned to a level of less instability and the probability of an eruption of considerable magnitude in terms of days or weeks has decreased, which allows it to change its level to yellow" , the entity pointed out.

Likewise, he said that the yellow level of activity indicates "an unstable behavior in which increases in seismic activity and manifestations on the surface are contemplated," while the agency also said that "the volcano can quickly destabilize."

Faced with this situation, the Colombian Geological Service confirmed that at any time, its activity could increase, so it is recommended to closely monitor its evolution.

“As we have reiterated, volcanic activity cannot be predicted, so it is impossible to know whether or not a volcano whose activity is increasing will eventually erupt. For this reason, following the precautionary principle and the mission that our entity has to inform the country about potential geothreats, it was essential to change the level from yellow to orange three months ago”, warned the general director of the SGC Julio Fierro Morales.

On the other hand, the SGC insisted that "we will continue to monitor 24/7" the Nevado del Ruiz volcano, although the periodicity of the bulletins where a report on monitoring is made will be weekly and monthly, due to the protocol to be followed for the yellow activity level.

The Nevado del Ruiz volcano is located between the border of the departments of Caldas and Tolima.
