In the last 24 hours the surveillance system of the Popocatépetl volcano registered 226 low-intensity exhalations, some of them accompanied by steam and gas. Also, 35 minutes of harmonic tremors were recorded.

At night, some incandescence was observed over the crater accompanied by emissions of steam and gas.

Currently, there is a continuous emission of steam and gas from the crater towards the west-southwesterly.

The National Disaster Prevention Center emphasizes that people should not go near the volcano, especially near the crater, due to the hazard caused by ballistic fragments.

The scenarios foreseen for this phase are: An explosive activity of low to intermediate level, accompanied with ash falling in nearby towns, and the possibility of short range pyroclastic flows and mudflows.
