Four small pulses of ash or eruptions occurred Saturday on the Turrialba volcano.

The most recent eruptions have reached 4000 meters higth.
The eruptions were confirmed by park rangers who remain in the vicinity of the volcano to prevent the entry of spectators.

The Emergency Committee maintains the yellow alert in the region.
The Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) recorded an eruption of Turrialba volcano on Saturday.
The event was presented to 1:55 p. m. and dropped ash on surrounding areas.
Strong gusts of wind, which persisted throughout the day, could cause falls of ash on other regions. According to the National Meteorological Institute (IMN), it was recorded speeds up to 80 km / h.
Maria Martinez, from the OVSICORI, said the activity lasted approximately 15 minutes and generated a plume about 500 meters above the crater.
« The moderate ash emissions continue intermittently, » said the expert.
According to experts, since December, the Turrialba volcano crater is 30 meters deep, as a result of eruptive activity since October 2014.
The Turrialba volcano, which some believed asleep, showed signs of change, just before 2005, with seismic swarms and expansion of fumaroles.
However, it had to wait until January 2010, when several mouths are open and erupted, the first in 144 years. The last dated from 1866.
Despite the volcanic activity, Tuesday, February 9, classes in schools near the volcano, will start normally.
