Mexico evacuates hundreds as volcano spews lava

Colima, Mexico (AFP) Oct 2, 2016


Mexican authorities have evacuated 400 people as a precaution as a major volcano spews lava, officials said.

Authorities imposed a security perimeter of 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) around the so-called Volcano of Fire in the western state of Colima.

They evacuated the small villages of La Becerrera and La Yerbabuena "to protect families" in the area, said state governor Jose Ignacio Peralta on Saturday.

Another village was evacuated in the neighboring state of Jalisco, the civil protection service there said.

The state civil protection authority said lava had flowed one kilometer down from the crater, which soars to nearly 3,900 meters (12,800 feet).
