Fire Volcano in Mexico – level 3

06-10-2016 07:00

Mexico’s Colima Volcano erupted on Friday sending ash and thick black smoke into the sky. The event caused two villages to evacuate the area.

Located in the western Mexico, Colima, commonly known as the Fire Volcano, is one of the country’s most active volcanoes.

As a result of the volcano erupting, authorities are urging local residents to evacuate their homes due to safety concerns. They do not know how bad the situation can get or whether the volcanic activity will recede.

According to research, increased activity at the 3,800-metre volcano is because of the growth of a new lava dome. The Fire Volcano might be only one of 3,000 in Mexico, but its activity has certainly made a name for itself.

Difficult words: urge (strongly ask somebody to do something), due to (because of), recede (become less), lava dome (a little hill of lava which came out of the volcano).
