Dramatic video as volcano erupts

Local News

A powerful volcanic eruption near Mexico City in Mexico was caught on video Thursday. The explosion happened just after 7:45 that night and sent a large column of ash and gas more than 8000 feet into the sky.

Since that first blast, it has sent more than 200 discharges into the air, with some landing as far as 50 miles away. The last major eruption for that volcano happened in 2000, and forced the evacuation of nearly 50-thousand residents living nearby.
