Nicaragua Monitors Volcano for Increased Seismic Activity

first_img The National System for Disaster Prevention, Mitigation and Assistance (SINAPRED), reported that the 726-meter tall volcano had increased its “seismic pattern” on the morning of June 4, and intensified during the evening. Cerro Negro volcano, one of the most active in the Pacific volcanic range, is located in León department, 90 km to the northeast of Managua, and it is characterized by the emission of fumes and ashes. “It increased its intensity on June 4 in the evening, registering 49 micro tremors, and increased the possibility of a volcanic eruption,” SINAPRED director Guillermo González told the press. Nicaragua is monitoring the activity of Cerro Negro volcano in the northeast of the country after an increase in its seismic activity, and called for tourists and neighbors to avoid climbing its slopes, an official source informed on June 4. The last important activity at Cerro Negro was registered in 1999, when three craters opened on its slope and poured out lava and ash. González explained that the population and tourists visiting the place had been recommended to avoid climbing its slopes until further notice. By Dialogo June 06, 2013last_img read more
