Volcano Telica spits up ashes!

Volcano Telica discharged enormous quantities of gas and ash on Tuesday after a strong eruption, but caused no damage, according to the Nicaraguan Territorial Studies Institute.

Strong eruptions persisted for several hours, but no people were in danger, according to eyewitnesses. The last major eruption of the 1060-metre volcano, 120 kilometres north-east of Managua, was in 1948.

The eruption was low intensity, but stronger than the volcano[0x2019]s normal activity, according to seismologist Alejandro Morales from the Nicaraguan Territorial Studies Institute.
