Turrialba, Costa-Rica :

 

After several small eruptions on Friday, Turrialba Volcano – located 50 kilometers east of Costa Rica’s capital – erupted at 5:10 a.m. on Saturday. According to the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI), the volcano spewed gas and vapor and launched ash 800 meters into the air. The eruption lasted for 30 minutes.

OVSICORI geologists report that the ash is being carried south and will fall primarily in areas immediately surrounding Turrialba. There have been no reports of ash in San José or the surrounding suburbs.

OVSICORI officials reported increased seismic activity at the volcano earlier this week and warned that an eruption could be imminent. After a series of major eruptions in 2014, Turrialba Volcano had been inactive for the past several months. With this explosion and another last Friday, volcanologists say that the volcano is reawakening.

“We are seeing a reactivation in the volcano, but it isn’t anything like the large eruptions we had last year,” OVSICORI official Javier Pacheco told daily La Nación. “This is a slow reactivation that has been underway since Oct. 10.”

Piton de la Fournaise, La Réunion :

End of the second phase effusive at 15:00 Saturday, October 24

From 3:00 p.m., October 24, the tremor is not permanent and effusive activity seems to have stopped.
As for the stop of activity on Sunday, October 18, the seismic signal is very noisy.

The OVPF does not exclude any hypothesis regarding the evolution in the next few hours that can be characterized either by a stop of all phenomena or a recovery in activity.
In the afternoon of Saturday, October 24, the weather conditions on site are very poor (presence of clouds).

The flow in place in the night of October 22 to 23, reached the foot of the rampart of the Enclos Fouqué at midday yesterday, a little west of the Piton de Bert, causing a fire. Despite rapid intervention of the aircraft Dash for fight against fire and firefighters on the ground, the fire spread and is still continuing at present.
Because of the danger of fire, the smoke that emerges and the potential instability of the ground, the four following access paths are prohibited at foot traffic:

Tremblet trail (GR R2), between the car park Foc Foc and Piton de Bert;
Tremblet trail (GR R2), between the car park Foc Foc and the Forest Road 4 (lower valley) via the Piton de Bert;
Tremblet trail (GR R2), between the car park Foc Foc and National Highway 2, through ravines Pont Rouge and Takamaka .
Payet path from Piton of Bert to RD 37.

This fire has resulted yesterday in a lack of information on the site. Indeed, the urgency was then the safeguard of the equipment!
Following the airdrops made in the fight against fire in progress, the image of our camera Piton Bert is « somewhat disturbed« .

Popocatepetl, Mexique :

 

October 24, 11:00 h (October 24, 16:00 GMT)

In the last 24 hours the seismic records of the surveillance system at Popocatépetl volcano registered 12 very-low-intensity exhalations some of these along with emissions of steam and gas that streong wind dispersed northeasterly .

Because of cloudy ocnditions in the area there is no visibility to the volcano.
Other monitoring parameters remaing unchanged.

CENAPRED emphasizes that people SHOULD NOT go near the volcano, especially near the crater, due to the hazard caused by ballistic fragments.This type of activity is included within the scenarios Volcanic Traffic Light Yellow Phase 2.
