Poás Volcano to Get Early Warning System
Visitors to the Poás Volcano, on the northwestern edge of the Central Valley, will soon have a better chance of escaping a blizzard of ash in the event of an eruption.
A new early warning security and communication system, made possible by a $20,000 donation from the government of Taiwan, will monitor visitor traffic through closed-circuit cameras and provide loudspeaker coverage throughout heavily visited areas of the national park.
According to the Ministry of Environment and Energy (MINAE), the warning system would serve as an alert for any kind of natural disaster, such as an eruption or mudslide, and also help monitor crime.
