Nicaragua’s Telica volcano unleashes cloud of gas and ash

May 18, 2011NICARAGUA — Managua – Nicaragua’s Telica volcano spewed a massive cloud of gas and ash into the air Tuesday following several strong explosions. Material was ejected 1.2 kilometres into the air above the crater of the 1,060-metre volcano, the seismological institute Ineter said. A total of 50 explosions were recorded. Since May 9, Ineter has recorded 59 seismic shocks in the area, and Telica had ejected a large amount of sand on nearby cities since Friday. Sixty nearby villages were evacuated as a precautionary measure. The volcano is located in Leon province, some 130 kilometres north-west of Managua. It last erupted in 1948. –Monsters and Critics
