"In the last 24 hours, the Popocatepetl volcano has issued 45 exhalations accompanied by emissions of water vapor and gas, the traffic light is yellow Alert Phase 3"

The number of exhalations have been steadily increasing on the last few months, no news there.  But I just found this news report and it stoke me the almost straight line drawn between the three incidents.

MEXICO CITY, Mexico, in July. 24, 2012. - The Popocatepetl volcano showed medium activity in the last 24 hours, with 45 exhalations accompanied by emissions of steam and gas and probably some amounts of ash.

According to the report of the National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred) issued at 11:00 hours, the activity of the last 24 hours, included glow in the night of Monday and dawn Tuesday.

The exhalations referred to in this report, were of low to medium amplitude and were accompanied by water vapor and gas, but could not confirm the presence of ash, due to cloud cover in the area prevented visibility.

In addition, we detected isolated segments of low-amplitude tremor, although not specified the cumulative time of this activity.

At the time of this report, there was no visibility of the volcano due to cloudiness in the area, but at times has been observed a persistent and thick plume of water vapor and the Stoplight Volcanic Alert Phase remains at yellow 3.

Correction and new earthquake

The Google terrain map I originally entered points to Yahualica, the municipal seat. The news report reads Santa Teresa, a town 4 MILES south of Yahualica ("Santa Teresa, Hidalgo, México" - Google Maps search).

I apologise Kojima, I'll triple check next time.

Nevertheless, Santa Teresa, although not on the side of the big ravine Yahualica is, the area in general is located at the start of the Oriental Sierra, 400-600 metres (1300-2000 ft), from the Gulf of Mexico.

The original news report was issued on July 21, and then there was a 5.2 earthquake reported on July 24 in Oaxaca (San Antonio Tepetlapa, Oaxaca, Mexico - Google Maps search), which is located in the same height range from the Pacific towards the Occidental Sierra.

Regarding the South America roll, from the Zetatalk Newsletter, Issue 251:  "What happens to Mexico during this process?"
