Cientos de evacuados mientras el Volcán de Fuego hace erupción en Guatemala

May 5, 2023 - ALas autoridades de Guatemala se apresuran a evacuar a cientos de personas tras la erupción del Volcán de Fuego, uno de los volcanes más activos de Centroamérica.

Guatemala’s disaster agency said the volcano had been emitting ash clouds that could affect as many as 100,000 people in communities around the peak.

The 2018 eruption killed 194 people and left another 234 missing.

The biggest danger from the volcano are lahars, a mixture of ash, rock, mud and debris, that can bury entire towns.

The disaster agency said that such lahars were flowing down four of the seven gullies on the volcano’s flanks, according to AP.
