Popocatépetl Volcano
« on: May 22, 2023, 09:17:40 AM »
A major eruption from the volcano located near Mexico City could effect millions. Something to keep an eye on.

Quote
Mexican authorities on Sunday raised the warning level for the Popocatepetl volcano to one step below red alert, as smoke, ash and molten rock spewed into the sky posing risks to aviation and far-flung communities below.

The volcano, located in central Mexico, is considered one of the most dangerous in the world because some 25 million people live within a 100-kilometer (60-mile) radius.

Sunday's increased alert level -- to "yellow phase three" -- comes a day after two Mexico City airports temporarily halted operations due to falling ash.

Quote
Popocatepetl, which has not had a massive eruption in more than a millennium, became active again in 1994 and has seen periods of increased activity ever since.

I blame Trump, the NRA and globular warmulating.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

WLJ: "Millions are told to get ready to evacuate as one of the world's most dangerous volcano..."

Yeah, millions more who can claim fake "refugee status" from the volcano.

Hey, come on in!  We can always use more voters who are not steeped in the values and traditions of the once-great United States

Yeah, I know. I'm blue-skying it, but nowadays that's my instant take on everything.  More gimme-gimme voters down the line after they achieve woke fake citizenship.

Ignore this post.  It's been a snarly day.

Sidebar #2:

I had a sled dog named Popocatepetl once.  We named the whole litter after Aztec mythology.  Vet visits were fun:  "Can you spell that?"
