Eruption of Popocatépetl volcano yesterday evening (image: Webcams de Mexico)
Activity at the volcano remains relatively intense. A stronger explosion began last night at 20:57 local time and lasted approx. 20 minutes.
Incandescent lava bombs were thrown all over the upper part of the summit cone, to distances exceeding several hundred meters, and an ash plume rose approx. 3000 m above the crater to 28,000 ft (8.5 km) altitude and drifted west.
Strong ash emissions and crater glow continued for several hours while slowly decreasing.
During the past days, the volcano has been producing between zero and 4 explosions of usually smaller but sometimes similar size, in addition to between 24 and 200 low-energy emissions ("exhalations"), as CENAPRED reports.
The volcano alert level remains unchanged at Yellow Phase 2.
Volcán Popocatépetl, whose name is the Aztec word for smoking mountain, towers to 5426 m 70 km SE of Mexico City to form North America's 2nd-highest volcano. The glacier-clad stratovolcano contains a steep-walled, 250-450 m deep crater. The generally symmetrical volcano is modified by the sharp-peaked Ventorrillo on the NW, a remnant of an earlier volcano.
At least three previous major cones were destroyed by gravitational failure during the Pleistocene, producing massive debris-avalanche deposits covering broad areas south of the volcano. The modern volcano was constructed to the south of the late-Pleistocene to Holocene El Fraile cone. Three major plinian eruptions, the most recent of which took place about 800 AD, have occurred from Popocatépetl since the mid Holocene, accompanied by pyroclastic flows and voluminous lahars that swept basins below the volcano. Frequent historical eruptions, first recorded in Aztec codices, have occurred since precolumbian time.

Photos from Greece
: We have traveled and studied extensively in Greece, in particular on its active volcanic areas such as Santorini, Nisyros, Milos, Methana.
Ijen volcano photos
: Ijen volcano in East Java is famous for its turquoise acid crater lake and the large sulfur deposits that are being mined by local workers. At night, the scene is illuminated by ghostly blue flames, as sulfur ignites.
1-3 day excursions
: If you're interested in volcanoes, there are a number of excursions you should not miss if you're in the area: hike to the craters of Stromboli volcano, climb Etna volcano, get to know the unique volcanic history of Santorini - some examples of shorter (1-3 days) tours and excursions we offer.
Latest quakes in Greece
: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
