Popocatépetl started a continuous emission last night

Today is a holiday and I’m up early to cover people at work, so there isn’t much time, but I wanted to mention that last evening Don Goyo got pretty rambunctious. It’s still going on. So far, CENAPRED hasn’t changed the alert level – it’s still Yellow, 2.

No live-blogging this time. With millions of people in the vicinity sitting around watching this volcano, I’m not going to comment on this – it wouldn’t contribute anything as I’m an amateur, and it might be mistaken by those desperate for any updates.

Plan Popocatépetl is a good one.
