Telica volcano shaken by explosive eruption – ejects ash cloud 3 km high

Telica May 28
May 2015 NICARAGUAAfter a week of calm, a new phase of explosive activity occurred yesterday at the volcano, beginning with a moderately large explosion at 12:02 local time. An ash plume rose approx. 3 km above the summit: Several smaller explosions and phases of calm ash venting followed this event. Ash falls were noted in up to 15 km distance to the SW, in areas of the villages Posolega and Quezalguaque.
So far it is unclear whether the explosions are the result of phreatic or hydrothermal activity, i.e. caused by pressurized fluids in the shallow hydrothermal system, or whether they are result of new magma reaching the surface.
For now, INETER has not found evidence of fresh magmatic material in the deposits of the explosions – all ash and blocks are fragmented older rocks from near the surface – and the accompanying seismicity has been very shallow. This would favor the first scenario. –Volcano Discovery

    Even if it is a result of phreatic or hydrothermal activity, it begs the question as to what is causing such an increase of pressure in the fluids of the hydrothermal system, as to cause an explosion of such a magnitude that the ash cloud in the above picture was the result.

    The only answer that makes sense to me is magma rising up towards the surface.

    Looks like Telica may well be clearing her throat for her solo performance.

      Do you think CERN could have something to with the volcanoes erupting? All that force of energy has to go somewhere.
