Mexico’s National Center for Prevention of Disasters (CENAPRED) reported an explosion with emissions of gas and “light” ash from the Popocatépetl Volcano on November 9.
Timelapse video posted by Webcams de Mexico shows large amounts of smoke spewing from the volcano. A yellow alert was issued for the surrounding region at the time.
CENAPRED urged citizens to keep away from the volcano “due to the danger of falling ballistic fragments,” and reported the ash reached a height of 1.24 miles (2 kilometers) as it moved northwest. CENAPRED also recorded 52 minutes of tremors with a “constant emission of volcanic gases.” Credit: Nicola Rustichelli via Storyful
