Poás volcano (Costa Rica): new phreatic eruption

Phreatic explosion at Poàs volcano yesterday morning (Ovsicori webcam)
Another moderately sized phreatic eruption from the crater lake of the volcano took place yesterday morning at 07:08 local time.
The explosion ejected steam, water, mud and rocks to about 100 m height.
According to Ovsicori, this type of intermittent, sporadic explosive activity has been characterizing the volcano's typical behavior since 2006. Similar eruptions can be expected in the coming days or even months.
The so-called phreatic explosions themselves are caused by overheated fluids in the hydrothermal system beneath the lake, not directly by fresh magma, but can be very dangerous for anyone near when they occur.
