Thousands of people living near the killer peak are on evacuation alert after the mile high plume began.
The Popocatépetl volcano , located 35 miles from Mexico City, is showing warning signs for its first eruption since 2000.
People within 10 miles of the mountain have been placed on yellow alert, ready to escape immediately if activity increases.
Probably the last thing the world would need right now..
Remember a few weeks ago when I posted the article on here of experts warning that it was volcano season? Seems correct given stories like this..
