One of Mexico’s most famous volcanos erupted this weekend, sending clouds of ash down on surrounding communities.

Popocatépetl has erupted twice since Saturday evening and emitted hundreds of short, low-intensity bursts of gas and smoke, Mexican authorities said on Sunday afternoon.

Unlike Italy’s Mount Etna, Popocatépetl hasn’t spewed any spectacular lava — much to the relief of residents in Mexico’s Puebla valley, which sits about 80 miles east of Mexico City. 

The area remains under “yellow alert,” meaning families should protect their food and drinking water from the volcano’s falling ash. 

But Popocatépetl is still lit up, even if cameras can’t capture it. At some points on the night of March 10, the volcano’s crater gave off a glow that intensified to a brilliant orange each time the volcano belched smoke, Mexico’s National Center for Disaster Prevention reported.

Elsewhere in North America, Alaska’s Bogoslof volcano has also been acting up. READ MORE
