Costa Rica’s Turrialbla volcano unleashes a new series of eruptions

April 14, 2012 COSTA RICAThursday morning the Turrialbla volcano unleashed a new series of eruptions, with experts converging on the colossus to take a close look at the smoke emanations coming from its centre. According to the Red Sismológica Nacional (RSN) and the Observatorio Vulcanologio y Sismologico de Costa Rica (OVISCORI) the activity does not present any danger, but will continue to monitor the volcano much closer. The alert followed reports by area residents of hearing a large rumble and then the sighting of dark coloured smoke, produced by gas fumes from the volcano. Last January the volcano became a concern for residents and experts following the emanation of white gas fumes. Several RSN experts are on their way to the top of the volcano and the OVISCORI is keeping the national park closed and under a green alert. –Inside Costa Rica
