The Popocatépetl volcano erupted 9 times during 6 hours 16 minutes continuously, sending incandescent fragments 1,000 meters around its crater and its flanks.
Some explosions during this long period of volcanic activity sent a plume of ash and gas rising 1,000 to 1,500 meters above the crater.
The monitoring system also registered 61 low-intensity exhalations, three volcanotectonic events, and 53 minutes of episodes of exhalation trains.
From these 9 explosions, four occurred yesterday at 14:13, 16:54, 21:24 and 23:09 h, and the others today at 02:53, 03:05, 06:41, 09:39 and 09:45 h. Ashfalls have been reported in the area.
The volcano-tectonic seismic events were recorded, today at 02:02 (M2.1), 02:23 (M2.2) and 03:14 (M1.5).
The Cenapred said the Popocatepetl volcano activity is within the normal parameters of activity for a Yellow phase 2 level of activity and therefore does not require a preventive evacuation.
The activity at the volcano has no direct relationship with the earthquake of magnitude 7.1, registered on September 19 with an epicenter in the state of Puebla.
