Volcano blast closes Costa Rica's top airport

Friday, March 13, 2015

Costa Rica's Turrialba volcano belched a column of gas and ash up to 3,280 feet into the air on Thursday in its most powerful eruption in two decades, and local authorities started to evacuate residents from the surrounding area.

Four explosions emanated from the volcano in central Costa Rica on Thursday, and ash reached parts of the capital San José some 30 miles away, where the airport was closed. It was the volcano's strongest eruption since 1996.
