Two volcanoes in Costa Rica now reporting increased activity

April 16, 2012 COSTA RICAThursday last the Turrialba sent experts scurrying to analyze the recent activity at the colossus southeast of San José. On Saturday, however, the Volcán Rincón de la Vieja, decided on a rumble of its own. It was around 2pm when residents heard the rumbles from the volcano located north of San José in the province of Guanacaste. Maria Martinez, volcanologist from the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI), explained that the phreatic eruption occurred at the lake and spewed water and sediment over the outer edge on the north side of the volcano. Authorities recommend not to approach the area and do not rule a new explosion. The entrance to the national park is closed. Both OVSICORI as the National Emergency Commission (CNE) will continue to closely monitor the volcano.  –Inside Costa Rica

  1. I have been keeping track through all your entries on your website and am very astonished as to all these natural events that have been occuring here on earth.Truly it does make one wonder
    what the future holds for us as human beings and what our role here is on earth.We need to take heed as to what we have done to our planet and understand the consequences that we may now face in our mindless use of Earth’s natural resources.
