Guatemala Volcano Remains Active as Search for Bodies Resumes

GUATEMALA CITY – Guatemala’s Fuego volcano – which has resulted in a death toll of 114 since its June 3 eruption – remains active and on Wednesday produced another lahar, as rescue authorities resumed the search for bodies.

The lahar – some 25 meters (82 feet) wide and two meters (six ft) high, consisting of liquified mud, volcanic ash and other debris – flowed toward the Ceniza ravine, causing the ground to vibrate.

National Disaster Reduction Coordinator spokesman David de Leon warned about the prospect of further pyroclastic flows and lahars and announced that rescue teams have entered “ground zero” searching for more victims, with 197 people still missing.

The volcano continued with its ongoing rumbling and moderate explosions on Wednesday morning.

Torrential rains and lahars over the past few hours have complicated the situation in areas devastated by the volcano, where more than 1.7 million people have been affected and many of whom have lost everything.
