Mexico’s Popocatepetl Volcano erupts again

Two weeks after the eruption of Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano which coincided with the Mexico 7.1 Earthquake, the volcano had another eruption, spewing clouds of smoke and ash. This means more tectonic activity in the region of recent earthquakes. At this point, the major earthquakes were measured in between the Matias Romero, Oaxaca Region and the Popocatepetl /Mexico City region.

Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano roared back to life early on Wednesday morning, spewing incandescent material and a large plume of ash and smoke into the sky.

The active volcano erupted about 4:45am local time and again at 8:00am local time in the fourth big eruption in recent days.

Mexico’s national disaster-prevention agency says the eruption of the volcano, dubbed ‘Don Goyo’ by locals, was unrelated to the earthquake that shook the country earlier this month, according to Associated Press.
