Evacuations ordered as Peru volcano spews ash 4 km high

The Andina state news agency quotes Agriculture Minister Juan Benites as saying it will take three days beginning Thursday, April 17, to move the residents of two southern districts and their 30,000 sheep, cows, horses, burros and other animals.

The 18,609-foot (5,672-meter) Ubinas is Peru's most active volcano. It most recent strong eruption period occurred from 2006-2009.
