Colima experienced three new explosions and a series of minor expulsions just days after earlier volcanic rumblings which led to the initial evacuation warnings.
At the time, it was the second Mexican volcano to be placed under an evacuation warning after the Popocatépetl Volcano, also near Mexico City and Peubla, sent a mile-high plume of ash and smoke into the air during an unexpected eruption.
During Popocatépetl’s last eruption in 2000 41,000 people had to be evacuated.
Live web cameras are monitoring both peaks for the earliest sign of more eruptions.
