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).

At night, he added, it was observed a slight glow above the crater of the volcano and at the time of this report (11:00 hours), the gas plume was diffuse, between 100 and 300 meters above the crater rim and goes west and southwest, toward Tetela Volcano.

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.”
