The eruption of Popocatepetl


Another powerful surge of activity of the volcano Popocatepetl located near from Mexico city, the Mexican capital, poses no danger to the local population.

In the night of Sunday in the crater of the volcano for several hours gushed lava, the ash emissions, palopoli occurred in several neighbourhoods and suburbs of Mexico city.

Local residents were asked to collect cigarette ash, but not to throw it down the drain, as when in contact with water it turns into a kind of cement, which may damage the drainage network.

Popocatepetl, located 55 kilometres South-East of Mexico city, the last time powerfully erupted in 2000, forcing thousands of people to evacuate from nearby towns.
