Turrialba volcano erupts in Costa Rica


Costa Rica’s majestic Turrriabla volcano erupted in the early hours of Monday (September 19), lighting up the night sky and spewing smoke and ash high into the night sky.

The eruption took place at 2:53 am local time (08:53 GMT) and peaked with incandescent rocks being thrown from its massive crater. A second occurred later that morning at 11.32am (17:32 GMT) sent ash and smoke some 13,000 feet (4,000 metres) into the air, according to Costa Rica’s volcano and seismology body OVSICORI. Both lasted around 15 minutes

Authorities have temporarily closed Costa Rica’s international airport following the explosions fearing the volcanic ash could cause problems for planes.
