MEXICO CITY — The Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City has spewed a cloud of vapor with some ash about a mile (2 kilometers) into the air, but experts said it was not related to the quakes.

The 17,797-foot (5,426-meter) volcano has been periodically erupting since 1994.

Saturday’s emissions come shortly after three powerful quakes that together have killed more than 400 people.
