Turrialba Volcano eruption in Costa Rica: Photos from the web

On Wednesday night a massive phreatic eruption spewed ash, rocks and possibly magma from the Turrialba Volcano, located 60 kilometers northeast of Costa Rica’s capital, San José. Here are some of the most incredible photos from around the web.

How does the ash rain fallout affect the animals, crops and wildlife? How much ash must accumulate before it is a significant problem? Wishing my Tico brothers and sisters well…
