An explosion at San Miguel volcano lofted ash over the surrounding landscape.

An explosion at El Salvador’s San Miguel (also known as Chaparrastique) Volcano lofted ash more than 71 kilometers (44 miles) downwind on December 29, 2013. Volcanologist Francisco Barahona, quoted by elsavador.com, suggested that the blast was caused by the interaction of water and hot magma within the volcano.
