Violent Mexican volcano eruption – Video

Spectacular eruption at Colima volcano sends huge column of smoke and ash high into the air.

10 Dec 2016 – One of the most active volcanoes in North America, the 3,839-meter mountain produced another series of remarkable eruptions on Friday and Saturday, sending lava cascading down its slopes and belching a column of smoke 1,000 meters into the air.

The region’s local website said that the lava flow now extends to 1,700 meters in length.

People living in the foothills of the mountain are advised to keep windows and doors shut, cover water tanks, avoid driving if possible and drive with the headlights on if they must drive. People with respiratory problems are being told to avoid going outside.
