The gods got angry.
It is a still active volcano.
Probably. It is an active volcano, so it might erupt eventually.
2046 was when it first erupted
It is currently not known when Popocatepetl will erupt again. It's most recent eruption was on July 4th 2013. It is generally very hard to know when a volcano will erupt though scientists are finding ways to know when to expect one.
What caused mt.adams to erupt?
The Cocos tectonic plate is subducting under the North American plate and this is what cause Mt. Popocatepetl to form.
Because all mountains will soon erupt, and mt. shasta did and it will erupt again
It was the Eurasian Plate and the North american plates that caused the volcano to erupt. They rubbed against each other and caused shaking
Popocatepetl erupted because of the build up of lava beneath the surface and it needed to find a way out so its just went up the main vent and started many eruptions. (April 16, 2012, over 30 eruptions in one day)
The plate boundary that caused Vesuvius to erupt is the convergence of the African and Eurasian plates. It stretches the length of the Italian Peninsula.
Popocatepetl is in Mexico.
What usually causes a volcano to erupt like Eyjafjallajokull is a slight disturbance in the ground.
the population of Popocatepetl is 18 million
an earthquake that was under it
Pompeii cannot erupt as it is a town. However, MOUNT VESUVIUS erupted as it is a volcano. There was an earthquake which caused the volcano to erupt.
The Aztecs. Popocatepetl means "smoking hill" in Nahuatl.
The Iztaccihuatl Volcano, just north of the Popocatepetl.
Popocatepetl means smoking mountain in aztec
the pressure that built up in it.

a geyser is caused to erupt by the ground over heating under the surface of the earth the it gets to hot and copoweeeee it explodes
The plates under Mt Tarawera rubbed together so it was easy for the mantle and lava to go through and erupt.
Mt. Popocatepetl is located in the country of Mexico.
Mt. Popocatepetl is important because the Aztecs made it.
Well, I know why Popocatepetl was called that... It meant 'Smoking Mountain'
Yes. Popocatepetl is part of the Ring of Fire.
Hi Francis house school say hi to mrs mckay for me. Mount Merupi erupted because they have just had an earthquake which caused a tsunami which then caused the volcano to erupt. from a francis huse student stephanie
IT WOULDNT BE REASONABLE BUT yes you can my friends mother has saw a popocatepetl
The African and Eurasian plates were moving and it erupted. Ps: It is one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world and it is quite likly it will erupt soon.
Popocatepetl is 43 miles from Mexico City. -E
The Popocatepetl volcano is located in central Mexico, on the coordinates (19.022222, -98.627778).
The magma build up was so great it caused it to explode.
It was Eurasian and the African platwes for sure
It got mad when it found out Justin Bieber existed.
Pressure was what caused it erupt. Magma was leaking through a weak spot in the Earth's crust, and a huge slab of rock was blocking it from coming out. Pressure increased, and finally it exploded. I don't know what article you're talking about
The Pacific and North American Plates were involved in the Novarupta eruption.
Volcanoes erupt because of the flow of magma in the mantle, which reaches the surface.
That would be the Popocatepetl Volcano http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popocatepetl
The Popocatepetl volcano is located in Mexico, and is considered to be part of the North American continent.
Popocatepetl is a volcano in Mexico. The name comes from the local language and means 'Mountain that smokes'
No, it is an upthrust peak caused by geologic compression.
It was the Eurasian Plate and the North American Plate
Eyjafjallajokull is on 2 plate boundaries, and these boundaries are moving apart, so plate movements have caused this Icelandic volcano to erupt increasingly.
The name Popocatepetl comes from the Nahuatl words popōca 'it smokes' and tepētl 'mountain', thus Smoking Mountain;
Last eruption occurred on Aug 17, 2016.
it was simply just tectonic plates that pushed the lava through.
Earthquakes are caused by a sudden surge of magma from the Earth's mantle
Divergent or transverse
The Popocatepetl volcano is located on the South American plate boundary. This volcano has been classified as dormant for many years.
