Eruption of the Fuego volcano in Guatemala: Institute


MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The eruption of the Fuego volcano has occurred in Guatemala, the National Institute of Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology (Insivumeh) announced on Sunday.

“Declared eruptive activity…continues to generate thick ash columns and pyroclastic flows toward Las Lajas Ravine,” the institute said on Twitter.

The cloud generated by this pyroclastic flow is hot and may cause ash fall in settlements on the western and southwestern flanks of the volcano, as well as affect air traffic, the statement added.

“The ash is located at an elevation of 8,000 meters above sea level (26,246 feet), moving west, northwest, as well as northeast, east and the southeast for a distance of 45 km. With a chance of increasing altitude and coverage in the next few hours,” the institute added.

Fuego is the most active volcano in Central America and is located about 45 kilometers west of the capital of Guatemala. The height of the volcano is 3763 meters above sea level.

In June 2018, the powerful eruption of this volcano affected 1.7 million citizens or 10% of the country’s population. At least 190 people were victims of the volcanic eruption.
