During the early hours of the morning local time, the webcam for Momotombo Volcano showed that it was erupting again. A strombolian lava fountain was observed during the morning. An ash plume reached the height of 2-2.5km before drifting northwest, and a lava flow descended the northeast side of the volcano. Yesterday, Momotombo begun an eruption which was it's first for 110 years.
