Having been active for over a year, the volcano is currently on phase two alert, meaning authorities are enforcing a protective radius around its crater.
On Thursday, the National Center of Disaster Prevention said the volcano had let out nearly 100 bursts of steam and gas in the the past 24 hours.
The rumblings and bursts of ash coming out from the volcano, located around 50 miles southeast of Mexico City, prompted airlines to cancel more than 40 flights to Mexico's capital as of Thursday.
