Ash Swept From Mall Roof as Mexico's Popocatepetl Volcano Erupts

Volcanic ash from Popocatepetl was swept from the roof of a shopping mall in Puebla, Mexico, on Sunday, May 21.

Video shared to Twitter, by user @ceetsa, shows a person wiping away thick ash from the mall’s glass roof.

On Monday, Mexico’s National Center for Disaster Prevention issued a yellow phase three warning following days of successive eruptions, urging people to avoid the volcano “due to the danger of falling ballistic fragments.”

The National Civil and Protection Service said Puebla International Airport suspended operations on Monday after the presence of ash fall on runways. Credit: Zeus Rodrigo Moreno Cortes via Storyful
