Video: Mexico’s Popocatépetl Volcano Spews Molten Rock Into the Air

The eruption of the 17,797-foot stratovolcano, the second most noteworthy peak in Mexico, started around 2:30AM, sending ash very almost two miles into the sky.

Popocatépetl is the most active spring of gushing lava in the nation, with recorded emissions going back to the arrival of the Spanish in 1519. It has been active since 1991, in the wake of being torpid for roughly a half of a century. Since 1993, smoke has continually surged from the hole.

The most recent ejection was April 3, only 15 days prior.

The name Popocatépetl is derived from the Nahuatl words popōca ‘it smokes’ and tepētl signifying “mountain,” meaning Smoking Mountain. Among local people, it is ordinarily alluded to as El Popo.
