Wednesday, September 27, 2006 - The American Red Cross joined an international relief mission after Ecuador's Tungurahua volcano exploded twice this summer, threatening surrounding villages and destroying food supplies.
Massive clouds of ash, steam and gas, as well as lava and volcanic rock fragments led to the evacuation of tens of thousands of people living in the many communities near the base of the volcano.
