Scientists say one of Costa Rica's largest volcanos is spewing clouds of ash and gas, setting off a small-scale evacuation.
Park rangers activated a green alert, the lowest of three levels, after the Turrialba volcano rumbled loudly and emitted thick clouds of ash.
Government seismologist Gino Gonzalez said Wednesday that the volcano appeared to be calming but 20 people and their livestock had been moved from their homes on the volcano's flanks.
