Costa Rican volcano spews ash in powerful eruption
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
Costa Rica’s Turrialba belched a column of gas and ash high into the sky on Tuesday (October 26), the latest in a series of eruptions at the majestic volcano.
Officials said the eruption occurred at 8.37 am (1437 gmt) and was a little bigger than recent activity at the site.
Significant emissions have been reported at the volcano in recent years but magma has rarely been observed at Turrialba’s crater.
The Turrialba Volcano National Park has been shut since 2009 due to the increased activity at the site.
