On the morning of the 2nd of January 2016, The Momotombo volcano Nicaragua, right, was the first volcano eruption of 2016! A strong explosion occurred that morning at 04:22 local time at the volcano, covering much of the summit cone with incandescent ejecta. It was the beginning of an extraordinary week for volcanoes around the world….. The next day Guatemala’s Fuego volcano spewed hot ash 24,000 feet into the sky, sending thick columns of ash nearly 24,000 feet (7,300 meters) into the sky amid loud explosions and extended new lava flows.

The volcano, only 30 miles (50 km) southwest of the Guatemalan capital. The next day Indonesia joined the party as the Soputan Volcano handed us the third eruption of this year, and it was still only the 5th of January: 5 volcanoes are on alert status in Indonesia with the colossus Mount Sinabung on high alert.
