Mexico’s Popocatepetl spurts ash, government monitors situation

Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano spewed ash, gas and steam on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Cameras belonging to Mexico’s National Centre for Prevention of Disasters (Centro Nacional de Prevencion de Desastres, or CENAPRED) caught the phenomenon on camera in the Altzomoni mountain range beside the volcano.

Residents in Mexico City and neighbouring State of Mexico shared social media videos of the clouds of smoke seen coming out of the famed volcano.

The Mexican government has deemed the exhalations of “Yellow Fase 2” severity and continues to monitor Popocatepetl.
