This dramatic footage shows the Popocatepetl volcano in Puebla, Mexico, spewing ash and smoke into the sunlight.

The powerful eruption sent ash as high as 2,500 feet into the atmosphere and was caught on camera by Webcams de México.

The volcano erupted three times over 17 hours and caused an earthquake with a magnitude of 1.7 on Saturday.

Local authorities have set up a 7.5 mile exclusion zone around the volcano as a safety precaution.
