In the last 24 hours the surveillance system at Popocatepetl volcano rocorded 20 very-low-intensity exhalations. Due to the cloudy conditions around the volcano it was not possible to verify emissions.
At the time of this report there is no visibility to the volcano; however, during previous hours a non-stop emission of steam and gas was observed, reaching an altitude of a little more than one kilometer above the crater, being dispersed towards west .
CENAPRED emphasizes that people SHOULD NOT go near the volcano, especially near the crater, due to the hazard caused by ballistic fragments .
