The Vulcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (Ovsicori) reported today that the Turrialba volcano maintains "sporadic passive eruptions" of "low impact" with ash emission.
"At 06:20 local time (12:20 GMT) there is an eruption in the Turrialba volcano, with a column that rises 200 meters above the height of the crater.The volcano maintains sporadic, low impact passive eruptions, with emission of very dilute ash in the plume of gases and water vapor ", indicates the Ovsicori report.
The authorities explained that volcanic earthquakes of "low frequency" and tremors of "very low amplitude, very sporadic" have been presented, while no ash fall or smell of sulfur is reported.
The Turrialba volcano, located about 70 kilometers east of San José, entered into an active phase of greater constancy since October 2014 and since then has presented numerous eruptions of ash, gases and incandescent material.
The colossus has generated ash columns up to 4,000 meters above the crater and affected populations of the Central Valley due to the fall of material.
