Mexican news media are reporting that Mt. Popocatépetl (Aztec for smoking mountain) came to life earlier this week spewing ash three kilometers in the air. It is Mexico’s most dangerous volcano and reports are coming in that it blew “incandescent fragments” 1.6 kilometers away.

The volcano has been showing signs of activity since late March.

According to authorities, the volcano began spewing out ash at 2:32 AM Monday morning (April 18, 2016) covering homes and vehicles in nearby Puebla city (population three million).

You can watch the eruption in the video below:

Mexico’s National Disaster Prevention Center has warned people to stay at least 12 kilometers away from the volcano.

If Mt. Popocatépetl ever fully erupted, the results would be catastrophic. There are about 25 million people living near the volcano including the 18 million inhabitants of Mexico City only 70 km (43 miles) away.

Concerned experts are keeping a close eye on the developing situation. Mt. Popocatépetl is one of the three super volcanoes that I have referenced in previous articles, the other two being under Yellowstone Park and in Italy.

In his prophetic word describing the end times, the prophet Joel warns about coming cataclysmic events. Some believe his use of the phrase “columns of smoke” describes volcanic eruptions. Notice the plural “columns” — it means there will be more than one.

“I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth,
Blood, fire and columns of smoke. (Joel 2:30 NASV)

As one blogger wryly noted with all the recent earthquakes and now volcanic activity, there is a “whole lotta shakin’ going on.”
