Massive eruption at Volcan de Fuego in Guatemala

2

A volcanic eruption at Guatemala’s Volcan de Fuego has sparked the evacuation of the area surrounding the peak on May 18, 2016.

The ash column reached 5,500 meters (18,000 feet) above sea level and “moderate” lava flow pours out of the mountain.

Pictures from the area show large clouds of ash rising from the Volcan de Fuego also known as the “Volcano of Fire.”
