Watch this Mexican volcano explode!

A volcano in Mexico has erupted sending a huge column and smoke and ash into the sky.

The Colima volcano is one of 3,000 located in Mexico but only 14 of them are considered active.

The ash travelled far enough to cover towns which were several miles away but authorities have told residents that they don't need to evacuate their houses.
