Guatemala volcano roars back to life

first_imgA volcano near the Guatemalan capital roared back to life on Wednesday, spewing ash high into the air, disaster safety officials said.The Fuego volcano, which is just 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Guatemala City and its population of one million people, coughed out gas and ash 4,800 meters above sea level.Despite at least two lava flows, Alejandro Maldonado, secretary of the disaster reduction office CONRAD, said the so-called “Fire Volcano” was not yet sufficiently dangerous to justify the evacuation of nearby villages.Experts say the volcano — one of the most active in Central America — may become increasingly violent in the coming hours and could affect air traffic.In February, a powerful eruption at Fuego forced authorities to declare an alert and close the airport in the capital.
