Schools near volcano to reopen Thursday

Public schools in the vicinity of the Turriabla volcano are expected to reopen Thursday. Five schools were closed by the Ministerio de Educación Pública because the volcano was erupting.

The schools are in El Volcán, Las Virtudes, Sitio Las Abras, La Reunión and La Pastoras.

The education ministry is taking the advice of the national emergency commission, which said that the activity in the volcano is diminishing.

In another volcano-related development Tuesday the Red Sismológica Nacional discounted messages being circulated on the social network that were incorrect. The Red said that the volcano continues to be under close watch by cameras and also seismic devices.

Other agencies also have been critical of rumor mongering.
