Mexico’s mercurial Popocatépetl volcano records 70 emissions in 24 hour period

 October 27, 2012MEXICOThe Popocatepetl volcano unleashed about 70 emissions of low to moderate intensity, several of which were accompanied by ash expulsions reaching a height of 1.5 to 2 kilometers. A night glow was also observed during the night and some of the fumes emitted incandescent fragments near the crater. According to the monitoring system of the National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred), the Volcanic Alert Level remains at Yellow Phase 2. It involves the likelihood that present moderate exhalations, some with ash emissions, sporadic bursts of level low to moderate probability of emission of incandescent fragments, may occur within walking distance of the crater. An incandescent light in the crater of the volcano is also distinctly observable during the night. At the same time, regional civil defense officials placed special emphasis on the following recommendations: continue the safety radius of 12 km, so staying in that area is not permitted, and maintain controlled traffic between Santiago and San Pedro Nexapa Xalitzintla via Paso de Cortés. -E-consulta (translated)

  1. This is scary just as the superstorm is in the U.S. that is about to stirke us. Mexico City is grave danger from this and the region around it. I want to predict that this is an iminent eruption–and very soon. When it does go, it will be a Mount Pinatubo explosion I say. It will last from three to seven days in length.

    Hopefully your prediction is incorrect. Mexico City is one of the largest and most populous megacities in the world and a catastrophic eruption of a grand magnitude would result in millions of human casualties, quite a scary thought.
