Authorities in the capital warned of possible ash fall in some municipalities of the south-southeast area of Mexico City after the explosion of the Popocatéptl volcano on Tuesday morning.
In view of this, the Secretariat for Comprehensive Risk Management and Civil Protection reported that the areas most likely to receive volcanic ash are Magdalena Contreras, Tlalpan, Coyoacán, Xochimilco, Milpa Alta, Tláhuac and Iztapalapa.
He also recommended the population to cover their nose and mouth with a damp handkerchief, clean eyes and throat with pure water, use frame lenses and avoid contact to reduce eye irritation.
Meanwhile, the Secretariat of Public Safety offered some recommendations to motorists; through his Twitter account he indicated that it is important to drive slowly since the ash could reduce the traction of the tires, park the car under some roof, and keep the windows closed.
The Popocatépetl had an explosion that left a column of ash 1.2 kilometers high this morning.
Also, in its morning report, the agency of the Institute of Geophysics of the UNAM announced that in Oaxaca there were 26 earthquakes, Chiapas 13, Guerrero three, Baja California two, and Jalisco two more.
