MEXICO : Is Popo...Getting Ready To Blow?

    New alerts have been issued for the recently active Popocatepetl volcano close to Puebla...and 43 miles from Cd de Mexico.
    Worrying new eruptions from the nearly 18,000 ft volcano began more than 2 weeks ago...as steam and ash spewing intensified.
    The alert has been raised to Yellow Level 5 out of 7 stages.
    In 2000...thousands of nearby residents were evacuated after a minor eruption.
    About 1,000 years ago...Popo erupted violently...and wiped out a village where Puebla is now located.
         ALSO: HUMOR En Esp: Officials discourage throwing human sacrifices into volcano to calm it...even politicians.
