April 15 11:20 ( April 15 16:20 GMT)

In the last 24 hours the Popocatepetl volcano monitoring system registered 36 exhalations of low to medium intensity, accompanied by emissions of steam, gas and sometimes small amounts of ash. The most important occurred today at 02:37 h (see image 1) (see image 2) and 10:16 h (see image).

During the night a slight incandecence was presented on the cráter (ver imagen).

At the time of this report it was observed with a constant emission of steam and gas in a East-Southeast direction (see image).

The current activity may cause the following scenarios:

-Small explosions releasing incandescent fragments no more than 4 kilometers from the crater.

-Emissions of ash plumes that could reach some communities into the path of the prevailing winds.

Current activity is contemplated within the scenarios provided for the volcanic traffic light Yellow Phase 2 level. It does not require modification in the traffic light alert.

Recommendations for ashfall are reiterated:

-Use masks when you work outdoors.

-Cover water reservoirs.

-Avoid the ash-fall in the animal feed.

-Avoid the ash accumulating on roofs.

-Avoid the ash go to drainage.

The Volcanic Traffic Light is at Yellow Phase 2.
