Watch the video of this morning’s eruption.

The first eruption occurred at 10:40pm Wednesday, the second at 12:37am Thursday.

The Turrialba has been very active so far in 2016 with eruptions that have exceeded the 3,000 metres high and expulsion of stones.

Experts are not ruling out the possibility the volcano is getting ready for a major eruption, they do feel that the spewing is lava is unlikely. And if it does, the lava flow would be on the north side of the volcano, and travel a distance of not more than one kilometre through an area inhabited.
