Can you tell when the volcano will be active?

Unlike earthquakes, volcanoes are more predictable and, although nature can always surprise you, there are warning signs: increased eruptions of ash and pyroclastic material; Slopes become deformed, there are more vibrations or the level of certain gases or chemical substances in the springs in the area increases.

In order to make the population understand the danger level at all times and the precautions to be taken in a simple manner, the National Center for Disaster Prevention (NCPD)CENAPRED, “Volcanic traffic light” designed: green means peace; yellow, alert; Red, danger.

Over the years it has oscillated between different levels within the yellow, which indicates you need to be prepared, but without any danger. The room also monitors other natural phenomena such as earthquakes—especially warning systems in major cities—storms and even the intensity of the Sun’s cosmic rays.
