Popocatepetl volcano spews smoke, ash in central Mexico

Mexico
Popocatepetl volcano in central Mexico was very active Thursday and three times spewed ash into the air in 3- kilometre-high columns. The volcano, which can be seen from Mexico City, had 44 bouts of low to moderate activity between midday Wednesday and Thursday morning. Some of the events also involved minor tremors. After each bout "the volcano's activity returned to the previous level." Despite recent activity, the authorities kept the security ring around the volcano at its usual distance of 12 kilometres.
