The volcano entered a “passive” phase of eruption on Tuesday, after five days of no activity. The eruptions reactivated in the early hours of Wednesday morning, a plume of ash and gas reaching 500 metres above the crater of the volcano.

The Ovsicori said it recorded some ash fall and the smell of sulfur in downtown San Jose, Tibás, Guadalupe, Coronado, Montes de Oca and San Francisco de Dos Ríos.
