Rincón de la Vieja Rumbles

Thursday last the Turrialba sent experts scurrying to analyse the recent activity at the colossus souteast 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 volanco 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 i 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.
