Telica volcano (Nicaragua): new eruptions and ash falls

Friday Sep 25, 2015 08:40 AM | BY: T

Eruption of Telica volcano yesterday
Eruption of Telica volcano yesterday
New explosions with ash emissions occurred at the volcano during the past days, following a period of calm that had lasted several months since the series of similar eruptions earlier this year in May.
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.
