Ecuador volcano quiet after prompting state of emergency

Cotopaxi volcano spewing ashes in Pichincha province, Ecuador on August 14, 2015After rumbling and belching ash, the Cotopaxi volcano was silent Sunday, hours after Ecuador declared a state of emergency and fearful residents were evacuated. “Monitoring of the Cotopaxi volcano last night and this morning indicated no increase in activity,” Ecuador’s Ministry of Security Coordination said in a statement. The agency is the only source authorized to speak on the matter after Ecuador issued a “preventative censorship,” which President Rafael Correa defended as a means of avoiding false rumors that could unleash panic.
