Civil Protection pointed out that, since the eruption of the Chaparrastique volcano in December 2013, “It has remained in permanent activity and in the last few hours there have been slight explosions, gas emissions and water vapor.”

The institution warned that the activity it currently presents could generate “slight inconvenience to the health of the inhabitants due to gases emitted, interruption and momentary suspensions in the mobility of vehicular traffic and pedestrian circulation”.

Chaparrastique is located at about 2,130 meters above sea level and its last eruption, before 2013, was in 1976, according to data from the Ministry of the Environment, which maintains permanent surveillance of some eight active volcanoes.
