MEXICO – The intensity of the current eruptive phase for Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano remains high. A phase of particularly strong tremor accompanying continuous explosions and ash emissions occurred this morning. As a consequence of the elevated activity, CENAPRED raised the alert level to Yellow, Phase 3. An exclusion zone of 12 km radius around the volcano is in place. During the (intermittent) eruptions, a steam and ash plume is rising about 3 km above the crater. A giant SO2 plume can be seen drifting north from Popocatepétl, which is notorious of its large SO2 output during eruptions. -Volcano Discovery
