This Friday, the Popocatepetl volcano registered a strong explosion of considerable intensity, leaving a smoke accompanied by gases and ash.

Civil Protection of the State of Mexico reported that at 11:58 this Friday, the smoke emitted by the Popo reached 1.6 kilometers in height, which was directed towards the northeast.

The loud roar could be heard in several municipalities near the colossus as Ozumba, Amecameca, Tepetlixpa, Atlautla, Ecatzingo and Ayapango, while the smoke could be seen from several points of the volcanoes area.

The activity of “Don Goyo” this Good Friday began early in the morning, as at 3:37 a.m. it registered its first explosion.

In view of the possible ash fall, authorities exhorted the population to avoid exercising outdoors, to use masks in case of leaving the house.

As well as to close doors and windows, avoid sweeping ash, cover water tanks and try to stay at home.

The Volcanic Alert Traffic Light remains at Yellow Phase 2; however, authorities asked the population to remain informed through official media in case of an emergency.
