This Sunday, November 22 at 8:45 local, the Telica volcano, located in Nicaragua, presented a strong explosion of gas and ash, accompanied by a plume amount to several thousand meters, projections of blocks and a small pyroclastic flow ... without warning signs.

Ash falls were reported in the southwest of the volcano on Cristo Rey and Quezalguaque. Other communities were affected, including Chinandega, Chichigalpay and Posoltega. At Aguas Fria, six cows were killed by falling boulders.
