The Turrialba volcano reentered a period of relative calm as it has gone five days without new expulsions of ash.

According to the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) of the National University, the colossus has remained low in widespread activity since early morning 3:35 a.m. on Friday June 3.

As they explain, “both degassing and seismicity remain at significantly lower levels.”

Sporadically, the traditional gas and steam plume from the active crater is seen through the webcam that sits on top of the Irazu volcano.

In OVSICORI, they say the pen is mainly scattered toward the northwest near the earth’s surface, indicating a pen with little force.

No ashfall or sulfur odor perception is reported.

For its part, the National Emergency Commission (CNE) said that the tremor is low in amplitude and is associated with slow transit of fluids.
“In case the eruptive process should occur again, ash and gas emanated would be scattered to the southwest, based on the wind direction reported by the weather station of the National Meteorological Institute, located at the top of the volcano. These wind conditions are very unstable between 3,000 and 4,000 m s. n. m., so it is constantly changing its course, ” mentioned in the CNE.
