Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano roared to life on Sunday morning. Check out the massive column of gas and ash that rose some 6500 feet into the sky. The last major eruption was back in 2000. That’s when some 40,000 residents had to be evacuated. A 7.5 mile security ring has been established around the volcano to keep people safe.
