March 31 , more than 335 earthquakes associated with fluid movements and five low-energy explosions , accompanied by plumes of ash and gas are reported by the newspaper El Comercio .
On 1 April, the director of the Instituto del Peru Geofisico - IGP - says an explosion produced an ash plume rising to over 1,000 meters above the crater at 7:42 LT . Neighboring villages were reached by falling ash .
