(QCOSTARICA) A new eruption of Turrialba volcano was recorded at 3:20 pm on Thursday causing a constant outpouring of ash from the colossus for several hours.
The ash, however, did not reach height given the eruption was non-explosive, reported the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) reported.
OVSICORI seismologist, Floribeth Vega, explained that although ash will not rise to a high altitude, the emanation may affect populations closest to the crater.
The specialist said that the weather and the cloudy sky is difficult to see the effect of ash with cameras installed in to monitor the volcano.
The OVSICORI also reported a tremor, a type of earthquake which shows activity in the magma of the volcano crater near.
