بركان دي فويغو في غواتيمالا

June 6, 2018 -- The death toll after Guatemala’s Fuego volcano erupted has hit 75 with at least 192 people missing as pyroclastic flows and volcanic gases threaten nearby villages.

Explosions intensified Wednesday, sending pyroclastic flows -- a mix of ash, molten rock and volcanic gases that can be more dangerous than lava -- streaming down the volcano’s south side.

The village of El Rodeo was devastated by lahars, a slurry of pyroclastic material, rocky debris and water. In steep areas, lahars can exceed speeds of 200 km/h (120mph).

Guatemala’s disaster agency said 3,100 people had evacuated nearby communities, and ashfall was affecting an area with about 1.7 million of country’s 15 million or so people. Shelters have been opened for those forced to flee. Sunday's eruption was the biggest since 1974.
