The Turrialba Volcano in Costa Rica has been in a period of relative calm throughout the past weeks with the constant emission of gas as vapor.
On Sunday afternoon, however, the volcano had another eruption of importance with emission of ash and a column that reached 500 meters above the crater (3,800 meters above sea level).
Another eruption was registered at 9 a.m. of Monday morning, with an important column of ash that could not be adequately measured due to the cloudy conditions in the area at the time, but estimated in 600 meters above sea level. The ash is being carried to the North by the wind.
“The Turrialba Volcano maintains a continued degasification with frequent ash emissions. The seismic activity in the past 24 hours has remained in a low level. The National Meteorological Institute’s station indicates variable dispersion between the north and west. Smell of sulfur is reported in Turrialba, Barva and Aquiares”, describes the report by the National University’s Volcanology and Seismology Research Institute ( OVSICORI)
