By CNN Spain

Like every day, the authorities of the National Coordination of Civil Protection have published a report with the latest updates on the Popocatépetl volcano.

Despite the maintenance of the Volcanic Warning Light at Amarillo Phase 3, some signs may indicate that activity is decreasing.

“From 05:00 to 15:00 the shock signal persists, its attitude continues to decrease; there were also small exhalations. No explosions were recorded during this period,” the authority said in a declaration.

And he adds: “It should be noted that the tendency to decrease the amplitude of the seismic signal of high-frequency tremor prevails”.

Authorities indicate that a lava dome is not observed at Popocatépetl volcano

The National Coordination of Civil Protection of Mexico reported that the Scientific Advisory Committee of Popocatépetl, after an analysis of the videos taken by a drone that flew over the volcano, indicates that there is no presence of a lava dome, that the crater ” filled significantly by the emitted fragmented magmatic material” and that the activity during the previous three days “consisted of the emission of ash and incandescent fragments associated with the tremor recording of fluctuating duration and amplitude”.

In this sense, says the agency, “the most probable scenario in the short term is that a similar activity continues”, namely: tremors of high frequency and variable amplitude, some explosions “of minor to moderate entity”.

They also indicate that ash emissions and the ejection of incandescent fragments can be expected within the 12 kilometer exclusion radius.

“A 700m-high column appears with continuous emission of water vapor and gas in a southeasterly direction,” the agency said.

The CNPC indicates that between Thursday and Friday there was a “tendency to decrease the seismic amplitude of the shock”.

The body points out that “sporadically it was possible to observe an emission of steam and low ash content gases in a south-southeast direction”.
