Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano unleashes 9 low-level emissions

March 15, 2012MEXICOThe National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred) reported that in the last hours, the volcano Popocatepetl has expelled nine low-intensity exhalations accompanied by emissions of water vapor and gas, and sometimes small amounts of ash. The body of the Ministry of the Interior (Interior Ministry) reported that the monitoring parameters remain without important changes. He explained that at night, a glow was observed in the crater of the volcano and that for now; there has been a constant emission of steam and gas. He said the advisory code remains yellow in color phase 2 and the likelihood of prevailing moderate exhalations, some with ash emissions, and sporadic bursts of low to moderate probability of emission of incandescent fragments could be expected within walking distance of the crater. The Cenapred called for authorities to continue the safety radius of 12 kilometers around the volcano. Civil Protection has been urged to maintain preventive procedures in place, according to their operational plans and that people should keep advised to the latest news bulletins. –Cronica (translated)

    Alvin. It seems with all the activity we are getting to the boiling point.!!!


    • And that will only be the beginning of the dangers…. It’s some wild time before us for sure. The planet is changing quickly even as the stock market rises. I’m afraid many will be caught by surprise in the palaces of moneychangers when the cry goes forth, ‘Behold, the Bridgegroom cometh!”

    I am looking so forward to those in the palaces of the moneychangers when the cry goes forth that the Bridegroom cometh, to not only be surprised but to be destroyed. I know ‘they’ too are serving God’s purpose and I pray for Him to speed the time up. There is so much suffering in the world and I only know a fraction of it. He knows it all and holds every tear in His hands, but surely even His hands must be getting filled up; overflowing with our grief and cries. His way and His time, but my Spirit is ready and I pray the trumpet will soon be heralded across the whole world.
    In His name, Sue
