Mexican volcano Popocatepetl erupts with 2km column of ash (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

The active volcano Popocatepetl, located in Central Mexico, has exploded Saturday evening, sending ash two kilometers into the air with the cloud of smoke moving in a northeast direction.

Videos from the eruption show a powerful explosion and traces of magma flowing out of the crater. Possible ash fall is expected in areas surrounding the summit. At the moment the volcanic warning issued by the Federal Civil Protection remains at ‘Phase 2’.

Authorities have urged citizens to stay clear of the region, and those already in the area to take precaution against a potential ash fall. Pyroclastic flows are also possible following the eruption.
