QCOSTARICA (6:17pm May 24, 2016) – The Turrialba volcano has gone almost 24 hours without the constant ash emissions that continued non-stop since last Friday.

The Red Sismológica Nacional (RSN) reports the ash emissions stopped around 9:45pm Monday. However, experts believe this to be a temporary lull, the colossus at any moment could resume eruptive activity.

Meanwhile, the Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica (Ovsicori) at 9:30am Tuesday reported the volcano remains emanating gases and water vapor, sometimes reached 1,000 metres (one kilometre) above the crater.

While for the last few days the winds blew ash across the north and west of the volcano, affecting greatly higher altitude areas like Coronado and Tibas, the ash reached San Jose and further west to many area of Alajuela, including Naranjo and Atenas.

However, Monday’s winds blew the ash east to places like Guapiles, in the canton of Pococi, Limon.

Since Friday morning at 7:27am, the Turrialba spewed ash for some 86 continuous hours.

For now, there is a two kilometre perimeter restriction around the crater and five kilometres where access is only for those who work in the fields and duly authorized personnel are allowed.
