7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Mex­i­can au­thor­i­ties say hun­dreds of peo­ple evac­u­ated from their homes over the week­end must re­main in shel­ters as erup­tions con­tinue at the Colima vol­cano. The na­tional civil de­fence of­fice said yes­ter­day that the res­i­dents of two com­mu­ni­ties in Colima state and one in Jalisco state would be pre­vented from re­turn­ing home for at least an­other 24 hours. It said the vol­cano con­tin­ues to be highly ac­tive, with a large plume of vapour and ash vis­i­ble. Au­thor­i­ties es­tab­lished an ex­clu­sion zone of about 12km in Colima and more than 7km in Jalisco. The zones en­com­pass Juan Bar­ra­gan, La Be­cerra and Yerbabuena. Also known as the Vol­cano of Fire, the 3,820m vol­cano is 690km west of Mex­ico City.
