At 23:05 local time on 6 June, another strong explosion took place at Colima volcano, sending an ash column to an altitude of 8,500 m a.s.l. which is drifting to the SW at approx. 70 km/h. Heavy ashfall occured in the cities of Colima and Villa de Álvarez and their surroundings. The use of dust masks was recommended by the authorities.
An exclusion perimeter of 7.5 kilometers (4.6 miles) around the volcano is in place.

Shortly before the onset of the eruption, at 23.00 local time, a non-forced evacuation of 4 communities around the volcano had started (Juan Barragán, Rancho de La Barranca, El Durazno,and El Borbollón). Most of the affected people made no objections to their temporary displacement to San José del Carmen.
