A new explosion occurred on January 12 on the Momotombo volcano.
This one took place at 12:02 noon and was similar to those that took place in early December 2015.
According to the authorities of the Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies (INETER), the process of explosion and ash emissions that began in December 2015 on the volcano presents no danger to the surrounding communities.
According to Rosario Murillo, coordinator of the first lady and the Communication and Citizenship Council, the ash column reached about 3,000 meters high, and was also sent off stones and incandescent material.
On December 1, 2015, the Momotombo volcano entered a new eruptive phase, after 110 years of calm since its last activity.
For about 4,500 years, the Momotombo recorded relatively few eruptive and seismic activity, according to data from INETER.
