Significant earthquake swarm reported at Costa Rica’s Turrialba volcano

July 15, 2013 COSTA RICA A significant earthquake swarm has started late on 13 July at the volcano and is continuing. This could indicate a rise of magma in progress and could eventually lead to new eruptions in the near future. The stratovolcano is 3,340 m (10,958 ft) high and is about 45 minutes from the Atlantic slope town of Turrialba. The summit has three craters, one of which has fumaroles and sulfur pits. The largest of the craters has a diameter of 164 feet (50 m). Turrialba is adjacent to the Irazú volcano and both are among Costa Rica’s largest volcanoes. It had at least five large explosive eruptions in last 3500 years. The Turrialba volcano last erupted in 2011. –Volcano Discovery , Wikp

    do you think the guatemala 3 volcanoes near panajachel will start soon?


    • I think the unrest is spreading across the planet in general, and volcanoes are awakening. When the particular volcanoes, you mentioned, will erupt- is a matter of watching for signs of elevated activity and volcanic quakes.
