Volcano erupts on island in Lake Nicaragua

Sunday, November 25, 2007
MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) The Concepcion volcano in Nicaragua sent huge columns of ash into the sky in eruptions that prompted a ripple of small earthquakes, local seismologists said Sunday.
The volcano, one of two on an island in Central America's largest lake, erupted Saturday night and related earthquakes continued to rattle the area on Sunday. No one was injured by the blast, Nicaragua's Institute of Territorial Studies said in a statement.
The 1,610-meter (5,282-foot) volcano is located 100 kilometers (60 miles) southeast of the capital, Managua, on an island popular with adventure tourists in Lake Nicaragua.
Ash rained down on local communities on Sunday, as strong winds carried it to toward the capital, the institute said.
The Concepcion volcano, which shares its lake island with the dormant Maderas volcano, last erupted in 2005.
