  • Ash from Popocatepetl volcano disrupts flights

    US airlines have cancelled flights into and out of Mexico City for a second day over fears that ash from a rumbling volcano could affect their planes. Delta and United Airlines were among the companies that stopped at least a dozen flights on Friday. On Thursday, more than 40 flights were cancelled, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded. Popocatepetl volcano has been rumbling all year, and began spewing ash and steam earlier in the week.
