New Alert At Turrialba Volcano

The alert for the Turrialba Volcano is back following Wednesday's activity that included the expulsion of ash and a slight tremor. The activity was confirmed by the Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico Nacional (Ovsicori) that constantly monitors the volcano.

The spewing of ash and debris and the tremor was confirmed by areas residents.

OVSICORI experts are on site analyzing the causes of this new outpouring of ash that lasted some 20 minutes. In addition, the experts are involved in flyovers of the area.

The Comisión Nacional de Emergencias (CNE) - national emergency commission - is keeping a "green" alert for the area surrounding the volcano, waiting on word of the OVISCORI experts and those of the Red Sismológica Nacional before upgrading the alert.
