The Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) informed through his Facebook page, that at 7:22am the volcano had an eruption that reached a height of 3,000 metres above the summit. A second eruption was recorded at 8:26am, this time reaching only a height of 1,500 metres.

Sunday night two eruptions were recorded, the first at 9:23pm and the second at 10:17pm, reported the OVSICORI, with ashfall reported in area of Barva de Heredia and Poas in the Central Valley and also in Cartago.

In the Sunday night eruption, the winds scattered thea ashes in the direction of the Orosi Valley, Gerardo de Dota and Quepos, all southwest of the volcano.

The Monday morning eruptions are believed to be tied to an increase in volcanic tremors recorded starting at 11:00pm Sunday night.

Given the increased activity of the volcano, OVSICORI volcanologist Javier Pacheco, recommends “romeros” – the faithful making their pilgrimage to Cartago in this year’s celebration of  Virgen de los Ángeles (Our Lady of the Angels) on August 2, wear facemasks – especially those suffering from respiratory ailments.
