Volcanoes move much more slowly than weather systems. Popo has been slooooooowly ramping up, and it's not there yet by any means, but the authorities held a meeting today, per CENAPRED's special report, since the volcano started having ash emissions accompanying high levels of tremor over the past 24 hours. Various communities and parts of Mexico City got lightly ashed.

That's new (the combination of tremor and emission, not ashing, which has happened before off and on during this loooong eruption); it's definitely not a sign that activity is winding down.

Also, this happened a couple hours ago (video is worth a thousand words):


They're keeping the alert level at Yellow, Phase 2.

I've never seen anything like this, but given the population nearby, I'm glad things are keeping at a relatively quiet level.

You may be able to watch the volcano livestream here, and I'm still live-blogging it when something spectacular happens, or when there is a change like this news today.
