The Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica (Ovsicori) said the eruption occurred at 7:30 am and lasted all day.

The Ovsicori said they received reports of ash fall in higher elections of Goicoechea and Heredia.

Experts say this is normal for an active volcano like the Turrialba.

Not to be outdone, the Tenorio Volcano located between Cañas, Tilaran, Guatuso and Upala in Guanacaste, that had lava flows and phreatic eruptions hundreds of years ago, then entered a period of inactivity, until it was classified as a dormant volcano, has shown “high seismicity”.

Experts say this is could be a possible awakening of the volcano.

Meanwhile, the Poas volcano national park remains closed to visitors.
