Costa Rica’s Halloween was more trick than treat Saturday. The country kicked off the morning with a series of small earthquakes and moved into the afternoon with a massive ash eruption from Turrialba Volcano at 1 p.m.

According to the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI), the volcano launched ash approximately 1,000 meters into the air.

OVSICORI vulcanologists say Turrialba Volcano is experiencing a period of increased activity following a lull over the past few months.
