January 4th, 2016 (ICR News) Nicaragua’s Momotombo volcano, which had been dormant for 110 years before waking from its slumber with a violent eruption last month, erupted for a second time before dawn on Sunday morning, according to the Nicaraguan Institute for Territorial Studies.

 

No one living in the surrounding area was hurt, according to officials.

 

Prior to a fiery eruption on December 2nd that shot a column of gas and ash more than 26,000 feet into the air, the volcano – located on the north end of Lake Managua, also known as Lake Xolotlan and not far from the city of Leon – had produced no significant activity since 1905.
