The three possible scenarios that “Don Goyo” could present
Enrique Guevara Ortiz, Director of Cenapred, explained in an interview with Aristegui Noticias that, based on monitoring the recent behavior of Popocatépetl, there are three possible futures regarding volcanic activity:
– The first and most favorable would be a progressive reduction in activity that would bring the crater to a period of rest.
– The second is that “Don Goyo” maintains an effusive activity with some explosions, as has happened recently.
– Finally, the most catastrophic (but least likely) scenario would be an increase in activity, which could lead the authorities to modify the volcanic alert status.
The National Coordination of Civil Protection (CNPC) informed that, from 00:50 hrs. on May 24, the volcanic activity of “Don Goyo” caused a low amplitude tremor, accompanied by the expulsion of incandescent fragments.
In addition to this, a constant emission of water vapor and gas was detected, with low ash content in a southeasterly direction.
Puebla “is ready” for a possible contingency for “Don Goyo”
In an interview with N+, the governor Sergio Salomon Cespedes considered that both the authorities and the population of the state are prepared to face any emergency that could be caused by the “Popo”.
“We will never know what the magnitude may be, but we are already prepared to be able to attack the different stages of a possible eruption contingency”, explained the president.
The latest reports from the National Center for Disaster Prevention (dinnerpred) detailed that, due to the weather conditions during the night of May 23 and the first minutes of the 24th, visibility towards Popocatépetl has been hampered, although it has been possible to observe an emission of steam and gas with low ash content.
