Eruption of Telica volcano yesterday
The first explosions started on Tuesday 23 Aug from around 08:00 local time and produced ash plumes that rose to approx. 500 m height. Ash fell in up to 30 km distance west of the volcano in the department of Chinandega. Another similar phase of activity occurred yesterday starting at 13:43.
Volcanologists from INETER assume that the activity is phreatic, ie. not caused by fresh magma near the surface.
