Mexico's colossus Popocatépetl volcano spews cloud of ash and rocks 3,000m (9,800ft) into the sky (Video)

The Mexican colossus, the Popocatépetl Volcano, whose name is the Aztec word for smoking mountain and towers to 5426 m 70 km SE of Mexico City to form North America's 2nd-highest volcano is currently spewing a volcanic ash plume that rose up to an estimated 3,000m (9,800ft) into the Mexico sky.

Mexico's Popocatépetl volcano erupted on Thursday with a dramatic show of lava and a cloud of ash and rocks that reached 3,000m (9,800ft) into the sky. No-one was hurt. Popocatépetl is an active stratovolcano, 70km (43 miles) south-east of the capital, Mexico City. Its name means "smokey mountain" in the indigenous Náhuatl language.
