More explosions in the Telica volcano; recommendations say do not approach
2 APRIL 2016. New explosions occurred April 2 in the Telica volcano, northwest of Nicaragua, and the country’s experts have recommended the public not to approach the crater. The blasts occurred the morning of Saturday, when the volcano ejected gases, said geologists from the Seismological Network of Nicaragua.
“The microseismicity present in the volcano is high, incandescence is also observed in the crater floor, we recommend the population and tourists not to approach the crater,” the Red.
Telica volcano is 1,061 meters high and located 112 kilometers northwest of Managua, and is one of the most active volcanoes in Nicaragua. It maintains it’s current activity since last May. Its eruptive process has not caused damage so far, although it is able to put at risk dozens of communities around the volcano.
That volcano is one of three that remain with eruptive activity currently in Nicaragua.
