The National Center for Disaster Prevention warned the southern neighborhoods of Mexico’s capital on Saturday to stay away from the Popocatepetl volcano that was registered at 183 emissions of gas and ash over 24 hours. The center was observing multiple rumblings and tremors.
Images of the volcano showed thin layers of ash coating car windshields in neighborhoods of Mexico City. The volcano known as “Don Goyo” has been active since 1994. Back in September 2017, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake shook central Mexico.
The volcano is located just 45 miles southeast of the capital.
