_http://www.chapintv.com/actualidad/santa-rosa--extrano-crater-se-formo-en-las-orillas-de-la-laguna-de-ixpaco--204359 said:Personnel from the National Coordination for Disaster Reduction (CONRED) monitor a chronic geological formation in the Ixpaco Lagoon located in the municipality of Pueblo Nuevo Viñas, Santa Rosa, from which sulfur smells too strong and vapors emanate at very high temperatures.
According to neighbors who have denounced the breath affects them and causes burning in the eyes, which is felt several miles away.
This monitoring is carried out from the shores of the "Laguna de Ixpaco" as it is known to a tributary of hot and sulphur water emitted by the volcano Tecuamburro and that for many has been medicinal.
According to Renato Hecheverria, CONRED's Departmental delegate, "the report will be sent to INSIVUMEH so that professionals can come to carry out geotechnical studies and determine the causes and origin of this geological formation and determine the mitigation measures to reduce the vulnerability of a risk to a disaster that affects the population".
