Costa Rica's Turrialba makes ashy mess of airports

Friday, September 23, 2016


In recent days, the Turrialba volcano in Costa Rica has had over 20 significant, ash-rich explosions that have ended up closing airports across the country. Turrialba has been restless for a few years now and occasionally the low-level ash emissions are punctuated by bigger blasts.

But the activity this week has been some of the most vigorous the volcano has seen since it woke up in 2010.
