Volcanic ash produced by the eruption of Mexico's Popocatépetl volcano has reached 7.3 km (24 000 feet) above sea level at 14:37 UTC on September 29, 2016.
According to the Washington VAAC, ash cloud is moving to the west and northwest of the summit.
At 16:00 UTC, CENAPRED reported that during the past 24 hours, seismic records of the surveillance system at Popocatépetl volcano registered 284 low-intensity exhalations with steam, gas and ash emission. It was not possible to observe the volcano continuously due to cloudy conditions.
The agency noted they have also recorded 99 minutes of low-amplitude harmonic tremor.
CENAPRED emphasizes that people should not go near the volcano, especially near the crater, due to the hazard caused by ballistic fragments.
