September 19, 2016: Costa Rica - Eruption of the Turriabla volcano.

In Costa Rica, the Turriabla volcano erupted on Monday. Since ashes spilled from the volcano could cause problems for planes, the two airports in San Jose (Juan Santamaria International and Tobias Bolanos) were temporary closed. The Turriabla volcano is located only 35 km from San José, the capital of the country.

Costa Rica is home to about 120 volcanoes, 6 of them are active. The major volcanic eruptions the country faced in last decades are those of the Poas Volcano (1953-55), Irazu (1963-1965), Arenal (1968) and Rincon de la Vieja (1966-1970 and 1990).
