June 2015MEXICO The Colima Volcano in Western Mexico blasted a column of ash and smoke into the air early Tuesday morning. The volcano, also known as the ‘Fire Volcano,’ is one of the most active in Mexico. It is included in the Colima Volcanic Complex, a prominent center of the Western Mexican Volcanic Belt. As of now, the renewed activity has not affected nearby cities. Colima volcano is one of the most active in Central America and one of the potentially most dangerous ones. It has had more than 30 periods of eruptions since 1585, including several significant eruptions in the late 1990s. Scientific monitoring of the volcano began about 20 years ago. Explosions continue to occur from time to time. On 16 May an ash plume rose from Colima to an altitude of 5.5 km (18,000 ft).  –KGNS
