Turrialba still being monitored closely

Emergency commission staffers still are keeping a close eye on the Turrialba volcano even though it has not erupted since Friday evening.

The Comisión Nacional de Prevención de Riesgos y Atención de Emergencias is using the time to evaluate the response to the week of eruptions that sent ash into the Central Valley and closed the two area airports.

Some areas close to the volcano are covered with ash and vegetation is destroyed.  The fumes from the mountain has done a lot of damage even before the current spate of eruptions.

Sensors still are detecting some activity beneath the mountain, but that is normal.
