Mass EVACUATION Mexico City on alert : One of world’s MOST DANGEROUS volcanoes threatens to BLOW : Is Mexico city doomed
THOUSANDS of people living by one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes have been put on evacuation alert after the monster peak began spewing toxic gas and ash.
Tens of thousands of people live in the farming villages on the volcano’s flanks while roughly
25 million people live within a 60 mile radius.
Historians tell us that Popocatepetl had a dramatic impact on the ancient Aztecs. After a huge eruption giant mud flows produced by massive eruptions covered entire Aztec cities. In fact, some of these mud flows were so large that they buried entire pyramids in super-heated mud.
But we haven’t witnessed anything like that in any of our lifetimes, so it is hard to even imagine devastation of that magnitude.
Mexico sits on the “Ring of Fire” that stretches along the outer rim of the Pacific Ocean. Over the past couple of years seismic activity throughout this area has started to really heat up, and according to Volcano Discovery there are dozens of volcanoes associated with the Ring of Fire that have recently erupted.
That is why so many people are alarmed about the very unusual activity that we began to see from Popocatepetl starting in mid-September. The following is from a report that was posted on September 23rd…
CENAPRED reported that during 16-22 September the seismic network at Popocatépetl recorded 15-89 daily emissions consisting of water vapor, gas, and sometimes ash; cloud cover often prevented visual observations. Variable nighttime or morning crater incandescence was observed most days, and 1-13 daily explosions were registered.
In recent days, the activity at Popocatepetl seems to be getting stronger and more intense
Mexico City is not in a particularly safe location. In addition to Popocatepetl, the city also sits in an area that is prone to experiencing earthquakes. One of these days we could see an event that could destroy much or all of Mexico City, and if that happened the entire economy of Mexico would immediately collapse and millions of refugees would start streaming north.
So ultimately Popocatepetl is not just a Mexican problem. If a major eruption took place, it would quickly become a U.S. problem too.
Thousands of people were placed on an evacuation warning this week
The volcano alert follows fears earlier this month that a second large volcano in Mexico – the 3,850 metres-high Colima in western Mexico – could be about to face a large scale eruption for the first time in 100 years.
Popocatépetl last saw a major eruption in 2000, but early warnings saw 41,000 people evacuated in advance, averting a major disaster.
Popocatépetl has erupted more than 20 times since 1519, according to records.
The glacier-covered peak is 5,426 metres-high.
Meanwhile Colima experienced a saw an ash cloud of 1.8 miles high expelled earlier this month.
This also put locals on standby for evacuations immediately afterwards.
