Volcano in Mexico erupts - level 3

New footage has captured the incredible moment a huge ash cloud spewed from a volcano in Mexico.

A giant plume of smoke can be seen rising from the Colima Volcano on Mexico's west coast when it erupted on Sunday, reaching heights of up to 2,000 metres.

The volcano, which is also known as Fire Volcano, often attracts scientists and geologists from across the world because of its constant rumblings. It’s had more than 30 periods of eruption since 1585, and this latest spell is considered non-threatening.

The volcano has been very active over the last few months and the surrounding area is on yellow alert which means that residents should be ready for a possible evacuation.

The volcano is known as the most active in the Colima Volcanic Complex and also erupted in late January.

Difficult words: incredible (great), huge (very big), ash (the grey dust from fire), spew (to throw), plume (a long cloud), geologist (somebody who studies geology, or science which deals with physical structure of the earth), constant (happening regularly, all the time), rumbling (making a deep sound), spell (a short period), threatening (dangerous).
