One of the world’s most active volcanoes, Mexico‘s Popocatepetl volcano, has come to life, spewing ash, gas, and steam.

Just 50 miles (80 kilometers) east of Mexico City, the volcano has spit out a cloud of ash and vapor 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) high.

The volcano has been exploding for several days, causing Mexico’s National Center for Disaster Prevention to elevate their national alert rating to Yellow Phase 3. A yellow alert signals that the volcano has demonstrated medium-to-high levels of activity. The next and final step would be a red alert, which would require the evacuation of nearby residents.
