“After the eruption recorded at 10:48 pm yesterday, the volcanic tremor fragmented, appearing intermittent. The geodetic observations show a slight extension of the base of the volcano and a slight uplift of the top,” detailed OVSICORIi experts.

Over the weekend, the OVSICORI reported that this volcano maintained strong seismic activity, with experts classifying one as a “major eruption” Saturday night.

According to the OVSICORI, the volcano has registered a total of 42 small and moderate eruptions this month of May.

The Comisión Nacional de Emergencias (CNE) – National Emergency Commission – has issued an alert for the areas in the vicinity of the volcano, including the districts of Dos Ríos and Aguas Claras in Upala, as well as for Cañas Dulces, Mayorga and Curubandé in Liberia.

The Rincón de la Vieja volcano,  some 23 km from Liberia, in the province of Guanacaste, has a height of 1,916 meters above sea level. The active crater is at 1,700 meters above sea level.
