Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity
Colima (Mexico): Fresh eruptions from the Colima volcano in Mexico have forced the evacuation of hundreds of people from their homes. Ash and thick black smoke rose from the volcano, 430 miles (690km) north-west of Mexico City. A flow of lava could be seen pouring down its slopes. More than 350 villagers living in La Yerbabuena and La Becerrera at the foot of the mountain were moved to safety, emergency officials said. Authorities in neighbouring Jalisco state also evacuated some residents.
