VO-2015-000025-CRI Volcano Costa Rica On 12 March 2015, the Turrialba Volcano - located in the Canton of Turrialba in the Province of Cartago, with an approximate elevation of 3,340 meters above sea level and a volcanic edifice 1,900 meters high - commenced eruptive activity characterized by ash expulsions. Three events of this same type were registered on the same day at 10:52, 13:38 and 14:50 local time, the latter being the most intense. As a result of these eruptions and due to wind conditions prevailing in the Central Valley area, a dispersion cloud formed covering most of the northern Central Valley sector. The cloud caused the interruption of operations for over 24 hours at the Juan Santamaría International Airport. This situation caused alarm among the population in the affected areas given that the Turrialba Volcano has been active since 2001 with increased activity since 2010. This is the first time that ash has rained down with this intensity. The National Risk Prevention and Emergency Care Commission (C.N.E. for its Spanish acronym) alerted the Technical Advisory Committee on Volcanology to conduct the relevant scientific studies around the situation so that first responder institutions and other government agencies could have the necessary data for appropriate decision-making. The Cantons of Alvarado and Turrialba are currently under a Yellow Alert due to their proximity to the volcano. The Costa Rican government is focusing work on four key actions: 1. Organizing the population 2. Rehabilitating evacuation routes 3. Responding to the impact on agriculture and livestock. 4. Monitoring and tracking volcanic activity
