The Popocatepetl volcano in central Mexico spurted a large plume of ash, smoke and steam into the sky. The eruption reached two kilometers into the sky, according to local media.
Mexico's National Disaster Prevention Centre said in its daily report that the volcano registered a total of 73 low intensity exhalations and four explosions over the last 24 hours. Authorities are urging people not to get close to the volcano and particularly to its crater.
Popocatepetl is the second tallest volcano in Mexico.
