Some of the lava bombs, visible in the webcam screenshot, fell outside the frame border, meaning that they reached distances probably greater than 2 km. An ash plume rose vertically to estimated to 25,000 ft altitude.
A smaller explosion occurred again at 06:37 this morning.
Les comparto estas fotos de la explosion de esta madrugada del @Popocatepetl_MX desde Paso de Cortés @webcamsdemexico @SkyAlertMx @chematierra @ffloresm @NikonMX @InfoMeteoro @CNPC_MX pic.twitter.com/W9K3Z0hqhV— Luis Garcia (@LuisGfoto) February 24, 2020
Monitoring data confirm the elevated activity: During the past 2 weeks, CENAPRED has been recording between zero and 11 explosions per day, between 100-400 daily passive emissions of steam and ash, and high values of combined tremor duration between 200-525 minutes per day. This suggests that the flux of magma rising within the volcano is significant.
