Active Volcano in Colima Mexico Keeps sending Ashes and Smoke into the Skies

Share This

The Colima Volcano sent smoke and ash three kilometers into the sky in a series of eruptions during the weekend.

There have been more eruptions at the Colima Volcano this week, sending ash and smoke more than three kilometers into the air.

Also known as the Volcano of Fire, it has been active since July 9, when ash falls forced the evacuation of several communities a few days later.

Various eruptions took place on Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th.  This volcano was previously active during the months of January and February.

A state of emergency was declared last month and nearly 700 people were evacuated in five municipalities in the states of Colima and Jalisco.
