    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Poas Volcano in Costa Rica today launched ash and gases 300 meters above its crater as part of its normal activity.

    The Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (Ovsicori) recorded the eruption with cameras placed in the crater, but ruled that this is not an abnormal occurrence, so the Poas Volcano National Park is still open to tourists.

    The eruption (gas and dust) occurred at 12.03 local time (18.02 GMT) and did not cause any material damage to the surrounding areas of the volcano, which is located in the center of the country about 60 miles northwest San José.

    For its part, the National Seismological Network (RSN) indicated that the site will be examined tomorrow to by a group of experts to assess the situation.

    The RSN explained that such eruptions occur frequently since March 2006 in the Poas volcano and that this activity generates no lava, but throws ash, water, mud and gas, which usually falls back into the crater.

    The last weekend two similar eruptions were recorded on the site, but smaller than today.

    Poas volcano is visited annually by thousands of tourists, who are attracted by its proximity to San Jose, turquoise water and its huge crater, which is about 350 meters deep.

    This volcano is located in the central volcanic mountain range of Costa Rica, in the province of Alajuela, about 60 miles northwest of San Jose. (ACAN-EFE)
