Mexican Volcano El Popocatépetl Erupts
At 9:06 PM last night, a volcano located near the Mexican city, Puebla City, erupted! The eruption was quick, and somewhat powerful, shooting molten rock a few meters away on all sides, and releasing a 1.2 Mile (2KM) high smoke plume. The eruption was incredibly loud as well, so loud in fact it caused windows and doors to begin vibrating in towns and cities as far as 27 Miles, (44KM) away.
Authorities have listed multiple recommendations following the eruption, including limiting open air activities, not allowing pets outdoors, and if going outside is necessary, to wear long sleeve shirts, a face mask, and a hat. They were also told that when returning home to wash their eyes and throats out with water.
This, however, is not the end for trouble from Popocatépetl, as it is believed that soon more gas and water vapor will be released from the Volcano, along with more molten rock. There is also reason to believe that these eruptions may cause pyroclastic flows and mudslides, however the scale is too small to call for an evacuation.
