August 21st, 2013 (InsideCostaRica.com) The Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) recorded two phreatic eruptions at the Poas Volcano yesterday morning.

 

The first eruption occurred at 9:55 a.m. and reached a height of between 2 to 3 meters.  The second eruption occurred at 11:16 a.m., reaching an estimated height of 10 to 15 meters.

 

The Director of OVSICORI, Victor Gonzalez, said the eruptions were not unusual for Poas, though did say that the low level of the volcano’s lagoon, despite significant rainfall, was striking.

 

The National Emergency Commission (CNE) maintains a green alert in Turrialba, Poas and Rincon de la Vieja due to phreatic eruptions and seismic activity in recent months.
