    Mexican volcano Popocatepetl is located some 50 kilometres from Mexico City in the eastern half of the Trans-Mexican volcanic belt and poses a danger to highly populated areas nearby.

    The Popocatepetl volcano has been active for the last three days, with the most recent eruption being registered on early Tuesday when the volcano sent gas and a column of ash about a kilometre into the sky. 

    The Mexican authorities have raised the warning level and have urged people to stay away from the volcano.
