MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City is still rumbling.
Mexico's National Disaster Prevention Center says seismic activity shook the area early Sunday. And the 17,886-foot (5,450-meter) mountain also emitted gas, ash and glowing-hot rocks.
The snow-capped volcano has been erupting periodically since 1994 and eruptions began strengthening about two weeks ago.
How odd that people would use a natural disaster as an excuse to spout their bigotry. I hope you never have to suffer from such an event. But, even now the US is going through so much destruction and death from natural disasters. Be a human being and realize that colors and cultures are just different--not better or worse. Open your mind and your **** might follow.
What's really errupting on this page are idiots like "Nick Won't Tell You" or whoever the heck you are blowing hot air that is completely nonsensical, you ungrateful ignorant biggot! It's just by the grace of a loving Creator that you happen to live in this free country by mistake because sounds to me that you shouldn't be allowed to exist period, much less post on this board about a natural disaster that could possibly occur but at this point is a curiosity. Be grateful for the air you breath you S.O.B! Not everyone has the luxury of not being born impoverished. Besides, Mexico is a beautiful country and Mexico City is a very cultural and fun city and the lower class people and drug cartels you're referring to make up a minority of the population. Fortunately, there are great schools, culture, and well educated people of higher classes that fortunately have more sense and taste than you're ignorant **** could ever wish for. Why don't you keep your unenlightened commentaries on nature and geography to yourself and save the space on this board for somebody that actually has something to add to humanity!!
Its not Americas problem we give that nasty country a lot anyways. Who cares. Does mexico help America in any way ? No they don't.
