Residents Evacuate As Guatemala’s Fuego Volcano Erupts AGAIN

by | Nov 20, 2018 | Headline News | 17 comments


Approximately 4,000 residents living near the Fuego volcano in Guatemala have been evacuated as the firey mountain began spewing hot ash and red-hot lava. The “Vulcán de Fuego” or “Volcano of Fire” has erupted five times already this year.

The Fuego volcano is one of the most active in Central America. An eruption back in June of this year killed 194 people when pyroclastic clouds rolled down its slopes. Fuego began violently erupting overnight, the country’s disaster agency Conred said, according to Reuters. June’s eruption was incredibly deadly and the nation’s president Jimmy Morales issued a three day national mourning period for those who lost their lives in the deadly blast.

Sergio Cabañas, head of the country’s National Disaster Management Agency (Conred), said the town of El Rodeo had been “buried”. Other towns affected include Alotenango and San Miguel los Lotes. Rescuers are still trying to reach a number of villages.

“Not everybody could leave — I’d say they were left buried,” Consuelo Hernández, a resident of the town of El Rodeo near the volcano, told the local el Periodiconewspaper. “Where we live the lava was coming down an alleyway… we ran to a hillside. If there are people buried, the lava came over the plots of land and streets.” –SHTFPlan

The volcano spewed out dangerous flows of fast-moving clouds of hot ash, lava, and gas early Monday morning and more than 2,000 people had taken refuge in shelters so far, officials from the agency told reporters. There were no immediate reports of injuries during this eruption. Juan Pablo Oliva, the head of the country’s seismological, volcanic and meteorological institute Insivumeh said that more dangerous flows of hot ash and lava could be expelled during this current eruption.

This is the fifth eruption so far this year of the 3,763-meter (12,346-feet) volcano, one of the most active in Central America, about 19 miles (30 km) south of Guatemala City.

        For some days, on satellite maps, you could see S02, originating from the area of Shasta and Lassen, traveling southward, down the volcanic rim of California’s Central valley. Sulfuric gases — not just smoke.

        Dutchsinse talks abut about a kind of traveling bubble, and, imho, you can watch that travel, using different utils.

        Thousands of my neighbors have discovered this, but they insist on going back. and it appears the local government is going to permit it. Democrats, rule here so what else can you expect?
        full disclosure; the volcano I live on is active but considered dormant.

      We can help out by taking them in as refugees.

        Ok, we can start by sending a family of five to live with you at your house. Or, how about this for crazy idea? Maybe the Guatemalan government and people can do something to help their own folks? Why do we have to take them in as refugees? I’ll be happy to donate a twenty to the Red Cross for disaster relief to the victims if you will.

        We assume that a Republican administration is against the demographic replacement of WASP’s, but there are formal, business licenses and govt subsidies, for the placement of migrants (or other ‘at-risk’) people. The trafficking of humans, if on the books, if reported to the govt, is actually a too-big-to-fail industry.

      In saw, following the Puerto Rico hurricane, where the pueblo would not have produced anything, industrially, the tin roof, over one single-room studio apt will have blown away, and economic migrants will say it is impossible to rebuild, with brick-a-brack, found, onsite.
