The Popocatepetl Volcano registered a strong explosion Tuesday evening in the states of Puebla and Morelos, in central Mexico, according to Mexico's Civil Protection Authority.

The explosion caused lava and ashes to spew, with a smoke plume almost two miles high emanating from the volcano's dome.

Authorities have asked locals to remain in their homes.

No initial reports of damages or injuries have been reported.
