Popocatepetl ash and Lava flow

The volcano had 25 eruptions of low to moderate intensity, and these were accompanied by water vapor in the last nine hours, the Popocatepetl volcano registered a flow of lava and ash in small amounts that were observed in the higher stations of the Colossus.

From 11:00 until 20:00 hours the volcano had 25 eruptions of low to moderate intensity, and these were accompanied by water vapor, gas and small amounts of ash, reported the National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred).

Between 16:35 and 19:51 hours, took five of the most important eruptions, which were accompanied by intense pulses in gases and ash plume that reached up to a kilometer high.

In addition, the system recorded a flow of lava and ash in small amounts, which was detected at the stations located on the top of the volcano however do-not mention any serious consequences.

Unlike previous days, and even the report from 11:00 hours on Thursday, from 17:00 hours today, they have had visibility into the crater.

PUEBLA, June 1. – The Popocatepetl had 35 eruptions accompanied by steam and gas and minor amounts of ash, during the last 24 hours, according to the National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred).

Therefore, it was reiterated that the volcanic alert level remains at Yellow Phase 3, which implies the probability of observing the following scenarios:

Explosive activity of intermediate-scale with high dome growth and possible expulsion of lava, explosions of increasing intensity and raining ash on nearby villages noticeable in smaller quantities and more remote populations, depending on the direction of the winds.”
