Even as the violent volcanic eruptions of Mount Agungu in Bali continued, there was footage from Mexico showing the Popocatépetl volcano erupting.

According to reports, the volcano had three eruptions, one of which actually sent material two and a half miles up into the sky. As a result, large amounts of volcanic fragments and ash spread over the villages and fields south of the volcano, which is also in close proximity to the capital, Mexico City.

Although Popo, as it is popularly known, regularly emits smoke and ash, it not considered life-threatening, as is the case in Bali at the moment.
