On the radio program, Nuestra Voz, volcanologist for the Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica (Ovsicori), Marino Protti, confirmed the readiness, explaining that the magma is with water that causes the strong steam eruptions.

According to the specialist and with the work of the Comision Nacional de Emergencias (CNE) – national emergency commission, they have been giving lectures and training to the locals on how to act if necessary.

Protti added that people living around the volcano are accustomed to the activity of the active volcano.

Remaining calm since the March eruptions, the colossus has been relatively calm. Until a few days ago, when seismic activity and eruptions, that included the spewing of ash, increased.

To ensure people not get too close the CNE is maintaining a safety ring of two kilometres around the volcano, where it is absolutely forbidden to enter by anyone.

Mauricio Mora of the Red Sismológica Nacional (RSN) – National Seismological Network, the difference from previous is activity, is that before there were large eruptions at high altitudes.
