Popocatepetl, one of the most violent volcanoes in Mexico, just outside Mexico City erupted today spewing ash and smoke into the sky. 2600 villagers were evacuated from the mountain area by the National Disaster Prevention Centre and local law officials. Eruptions had been occurring over night and had stopped. However, the rumbling suddenly started again this morning around 5am.
An interesting side note is that the last time this volcano erupted was December 25, 2005.
