The eruption and consequent pyroclastic flow, ash, and SO2. Has claimed dozens of lives living near the volcano. Searches are ongoing this morning.
Fuego is a classic cone volcano. When it blows its right out of the picture books.
This eruption is sending a great deal of lava down the volcano and endangering homes and lives.
This is the second eruption in 2018.

With the death toll at or over 100, this woman seeks her 50 family members buried in the ash flow.

She lost her children, grandchildren, siblings, and extended family.
This is the real face for volcanic eruptions.

This is sad. I know that volcanism can be a cyclical thing along with solar cycles but it's still sad to see this.

Missing presumed dead number has risen to 332

200 communities uninhabitable

1.7 million affected by ashfall.

The number of dead expected to rise.

This was one mean eruption.
