Dangerous volcano threatens to spread ash over Mexico City (yahoo.com)

 Video taken of Mexico’s most active volcano shows an increase of ash and gasses spewing into the air, which authorities warned had the potential to impact parts of the country’s largest city.

The Popocatépetl volcano is located about 45 miles southeast of Mexico City, and it’s estimated roughly 25 million people live within a 60-mile radius of the composite volcano.

The center said there is an increased risk of falling rocks, and an uptick in earthquakes has been reported around the mountain.

It's the most active volcano in Mexico so it's eruptions aren't surprising. Just in the news now.

I haven't seen any updates since Thursday. I guess it's still spitting ash and smoke.

It's also quite close to highly populated areas.

3 major Plinian eruptions in the Holocene, each of which one can find human artifacts underneath. Mexico City lies in the footprint of those deposits, as well as Puebla. Over 30 million people!
