Volcano near Mexico City blasts out ash

31 Aug 11 – Popocatepetl volcano spewed ash more than 3,200 feet (1 km) into the sky four times on Tuesday, Mexico’s national disaster prevention agency said.

The agency said there was a possibility ash could fall on to Mexico City overnight, and urged people to stay at least 7 miles (12 km) from the crater.

The three-mile-high volcano, pronounced po-po-ka-TEH-peh-tel, is located about 36 miles (65 km) southeast of the Mexican capital.
