COLIMA, Mexico, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Mexican authorities said a volcano eruption caught on webcam blasted ash at least 13,000 feet into the air, but did not pose a danger to the public.
The Colima volcano, located on the border of southwestern states Colima and Jalisco, erupted about 9:13 a.m. Wednesday and blasted ash about 13,000 feet into the air.
Time-lapse video of the eruption and an earlier burst of ash Monday were recorded by a webcam placed in 2013 to monitor the volcano, which has erupted more than 40 times since the 16th century.
Colima Gov. Mario Anguiano Moreno tweeted the volcano posed "no considerable risk to the population, since the wind is taking the ashes to the northeast of the state."
The Jalisco state civil protection agency reported some ash had reached the communities of Huescalapa, Los Mazos, Atenquique and Vista Hermosa. No evacuations were reported.
