The volcano, colloquially known as ‘Popo’, erupted in the early hours of Thursday, spewing ash into the atmosphere.

The have now been a total of 11 “low-intensity exhalations” of smoke since the first, and three eruptions.

Mexico’s National Disaster Prevention Center (CENAPRED) said that “the seismic monitoring systems of the Popocatépetl volcano recorded 11 low-intensity exhalations and three explosions at 02:26, 03:26 and 03:27”.

CENAPRED added that “there was a report of slight ash fall” in local areas and rock fragments were blasted almost 600 metres away.

The centre also warned people to stay away from the volcano due to “the danger of falling ballistic fragments”.

A video of the 02:26 eruption was captured on video which shows just how much potential the volcano has to be catastrophic.

The video shows massive plumes of smoke being pummelled into the air as lava trickles down the side of the huge volcano.

At 5,426 metres tall, Popo, which is some 70 kilometres away from the capital Mexico City, is the second largest volcano in North America, but experts say that it does not pose a huge threat to locals due to its usually dormant nature.
