The eruptions of Popocatepetl Volcano in Mexico continue.
While ashfall continued in the surrounding cities due to the eruptions in the volcano, face-to-face education was suspended in schools in 22 cities in Puebla state.
In a statement, Puebla State Governor Salomon Cespedes announced that due to the constant ashfall in the cities near the Popocatepetl Volcano, it was decided to continue education in the region in a virtual environment, in consultation with the mayors of these cities, until a second announcement is made.
Stating that the volcano was being watched by civil protection officials, Governor Cespedes stated that there was no situation that would cause panic and called on the public to remain calm.
Flights suspended due to ashfall
The recent eruption activities on Popocatepetl Volcano and the resulting ashfall in the surrounding area also negatively affect air transportation.
Flights were suspended for one day in order to clear the ash accumulated due to ashfall on the runways of Puebla International Airport in April.
In the past days, it was reported that the windows of some houses were broken due to the violence of the explosions in the regions close to the volcano. Popocatepetl Volcano, which has seen an increase in its activities for more than a year, had a total of 113 eruptions last year, and the number of eruptions recorded from the beginning of 2023 to date has reached 503.
