Mexico’s POPOCATÉPETL volcano has again erupted, sending a giant column of smoke high into the air visible across the state of Puebla.
Witnesses reported a violent “explosion” before smoke and ash began billowing out of the volcano.
The city of Puebla and other neighbouring communities are under yellow alert.
According to the National Centre for Disaster Prevention, the volcano has had 34 exhalations and 5 explosions in the last 24 hours.
Ash is still falling in Morelos and the Edomex from Tuesday’s initial eruption.
Residents have been urged to stay indoors and venture no closer than 12km from the volcano.
The recent global volcanic uptick is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma chambers.
