Nice general news article on CENAPRED and Popocatépetl

Today Don Goyo has wrapped himself in a white cloak.

Here is Fox News Latino’s article.

It’s very nice, going into detail on CENAPRED’s history, and they actually do a good job of describing the volcano and the hazards it holds for nearby population centers. There is a photograph of the inside of CENAPRED, which is cool, too.

They have five webcams, four of which are available publicly online (Altzomoni, Tlamacas, Tianguismanalco and Tochimilco).

Note, too, that nearby Iztaccîhuatl is described as dormant, not extinct. The Smithsonian’s online Global Volcanism Report on it, however, says that no (modern) eruptions from Izta are known.
