In this photo released by the civil defense unit of the state government of Jalisco, the eruption plume from the initial stage of the powerful vulcanian explosion at Colima volcano on May 23, 2005, has been captured on film. The collapsing eruption column loaded with ash and rock fragments has not yet fully developed, but the flanks of the volcano are already covered by the impacts of ballistics.

Volcano news: Colima Volcano (Mexico)

Colima volcano (Western Mexico) activity update

Donnerstag Jan 31, 2013 06:05 | VON: T

The volcano has been quiet so far after Tuesday's powerful vulcanian explosion that produced an ash column 3 km high and ejected many incandescent bombs onto the upper flanks of the volcano.
The current seismic signal shows some small volcanic quakes, signals of rockfalls and possibly minor explosions.

Activity has increased. The internal unrest causing the seismic swarm has apparently culminated in vigorous ash emissions producing a plume rising to 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude, drifting NE (Washington VAAC). [mehr]

Seismic recording from Colima volcano evening of 22 Jan (EZV2 station, Univ. Colima)
Mittwoch, Jan 23, 2013
Rockfalls and small volcanic quakes possibly accompany small emissions from the volcano. A 4.7 regional quake off the western coast of Mexico (large signal) also appears on last evening's seismogram. [mehr]
Montag, Jan 21, 2013
The volcano continues to wake up and become more active. At least 3 ash explosions have occurred over the weekend (two on Saturday, one on Sunday). The eruptions produced relatively small ash plumes rising a few hundred meters. ... [mehr]

Background:

Colima volcano is one of the most active in North America and one of the potentially most dangerous ones. It has had more than 30 periods of eruptions since 1585, including several significant eruptions in the late 1990s. Scientific monitoring of the volcano began 20 years ago. 

The Colima volcanic complex is the most prominent volcanic center of the western Mexican Volcanic Belt.  It consists of two southward-younging volcanoes, Nevado de Colima (the 4320 m high point of the complex) on the north and the 3850-m-high historically active Volcán de Colima at the south. 
A group of cinder cones of probable late-Pleistocene age is located on the floor of the Colima graben west and east of the Colima complex. Volcán de Colima (also known as Volcán Fuego) is a youthful stratovolcano constructed within a 5-km-wide caldera, breached to the south, that has been the source of large debris avalanches.  Major slope failures have occurred repeatedly from both the Nevado and Colima cones, and have produced a thick apron of debris-avalanche deposits on three sides of the complex.  Frequent historical eruptions date back to the 16th century.  Occasional major explosive eruptions (most recently in 1913) have destroyed the summit and left a deep, steep-sided crater that was slowly refilled and then overtopped by lava dome growth.
