A Mexican volcano erupted late Wednesday night, and the exact moment of the natural disaster was caught on camera.
The active volcano, which is called Popocatepetl and located in the south central region of Mexico, erupted massively and sent a nearly two-mile radius of ash and smoke into the surrounding area
Approximately 380,000 people live within 15 miles of the volcano. Residents were instructed to close their windows and cover their faces with wet cloths to prevent breathing difficulties as the ash settles.
At 17,887 feet high with a crater of 2,952 feet wide, Popocatepetl is considered one of the top 10 most dangerous volcanoes in the world.
