The geologist explained that we can expect a similar eruption 150 years ago in which there was much ash .

The Turrialba last erupted Tuesday at 2:07 am.

Ash and the smell of sulfur reached different parts of the Central Valley, and as far north as Cuidad Quesada in San Carlos.

According to Raul Mora, volcanologist at the Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica de la Universidad Nacional (Ovsicori), ash reached a height that was pushed north by the winds.
