According to Ineter, an explosion occurred on Sunday, July 21, in the afternoon in the crater Santiago of Masaya in Nicaragua, famous for presenting one of the few visible lava lakes in the world, accessible by car.
According to official reports, the ashes released did not cause injuries to people who were near the crater and did not pose a problem for neighboring populations, but the authorities did not rule out any additional activities. The Masaya Park has been temporarily closed.
"This is a low-energy event that occurs when one of the crater's internal ducts becomes clogged and holds high-pressure gases, which accumulate energy to produce an explosion, expelling ashes, and sometimes rocks ", according to Ineter.
