PUEBLA, MEXICO.- The Popocatépetl volcano registered 45 exhalations in the last day, according to daily monitoring carried out by the National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred) together with the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).

Currently, Don Goyo -as the volcano is known among locals- is in phase 2 yellow, according to the Cenapred and UNAM Volcanic Alert Traffic Light.

Consequently, the population is urged not to approach the volcano, especially the crater, due to the danger of falling ballistic fragments.

In the event of heavy rains being reported in the Popocatépetl area, it is important to stay away from the bottom of the ravines, due to the danger posed by the flow of mud and debris.
Popocatépetl had 53 exhalations this June 16.

The federal authorities called on citizens to ignore rumors and be attentive to the information issued by the National Civil Protection Coordination through its official channels and accounts, which are: www.gob.mx/cenapred and @CNPC_MX on Twitter.
