El Salvador volcano erupts, prompting evacuations

The Chaparrastique volcano in eastern El Salvador belched a column of hot ash high into the air on Sunday, frightening nearby residents and prompting authorities to order evacuations in the area.
There were no immediate reports of injuries in the San Miguel region, where the volcano is located and that is known for its coffee plantations.
Civil protection authorities said they would evacuate people from within 1.9 miles of the volcano and set up emergency shelters.

hey Greg,

Happy New Year your you and your family

That's a great bit of video, I just wish the cameraman aimed skyward a little bit more and zoomed out a bit so we could see more of the plume
