The Tungurahua volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in Ecuador. It had been largely at rest for most of the 20th Century, but resumed a period of activity in 1999. The most significant eruptions in recent times were violent eruptions in July and August of 2006, the latter of which resulted in 7 deaths.
