Experts have issued warnings for Mexico’s Mt Popocatepetl, also known as El Popo, and Alaska’s Great Sitkin volcano as both showed significant signs of activity.
Officials have issued a Yellow Warning for both of the volcanoes which means that it is showing signs of unrest and will continue to be closely monitored.
Authorities in Mexico said on a government website regarding El Popo: “In the last 24 hours, through the monitoring systems at Popocatépetl volcano, were registered 30 exhalations with emissions of steam and gas.
“CENAPRED emphasises that people SHOULD NOT go near the volcano, especially near the crater, due to the hazard caused by ballistic fragments.”

El Popo is one of the most dangerous volcanoes in North America and is just 70 kilometres away from Mexico City.
An eruption would threaten the 9 MILLION inhabitants.
Meanwhile, the Alaska Volcano Observatory issued a similar statement about the Great Sitkin volcano: “Earthquake activity at Great Sitkin Volcano has been elevated over the past five days, and earlier today at 11:39 AKDT (19:39 UTC), a signal that may represent a short-lived steam explosion was detected by seismic data.”
Unlike El Popo, the Great Sitkin is located in a remote area away from civilisation.
