During late December 2000, the giant volcano Popocatépetl near Mexico City exhibited violent explosions. About 20,000 people evacuated their homes for a week to 10 days before returning. On January 22, 2001, an even larger explosion occurred. This article explores the short-term hazards that are probable at this volcano.
