Is the Chaparrastique volcano going to erupt soon?

The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (MARN) announced that the average seismic tremors at Chaparrastique’s volcano have recently increased, reaching an amazing 555 vibrations on August 8, 2015.

Normal vibration level is 50 units/ day. And in just 4 hours, seismometers recorded 555 quakes. There is really something going on in there!

According to MARN, these changes occur at the bottom of the volcano. It can be either water, steam or magmatic material.

The volcano seismic activity accompanied by high emissions of gases is indicative of deep magma ascent from feeding systems. An explosion with emission of gases and ash cannot be ruled out.
