Yesterday afternoon, the day of Epiphany, a violent explosion of Mexico's Colima volcano caused a high alert in the Mexican civil protection system with the immediate evacuation of about 3,000 tourists inside the National Park Nevado de Colima. In locations around the volcano there has been an intense rain of ash, and from the summit of the mountain a cloud of lava and eruptive material has risen over 2 km high. At the time there were no damages nor was evacuation required of the land closest to the volcano, from which we have been able to enjoy the unique spectacle of nature, but in the next few days is not impossible that the eruption could intensify, although at the moment it is quiet. As a precaution, the National Park is closed to visitors indefinitely.

Put a lid on it

Mexico better put a lid on that volcano or they will be exceeding their CO2 and SO2 limits for the year even before the year fully starts.
