The deadly eruption of Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire has affected more than 1.7 million people and created havoc in surrounding municipalities, sending thousands of people fleeing for their lives through streets buried in ash.

As least 25 people have been reported as killed so far – including two children who were burned to death while standing on a bridge watching the eruption unfold – and dozens have been injured, as the National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction (Conred) continues rescue efforts to locate those reported missing.

Most affected by the massive fall of volcanic ash were the municipalities of Sacatepéquez, Chimaltenango and Escuintla, Conred spokesman David de León said. A change of wind caused ash to descend on the capital, Guatemala City, before proceeding to eastern and northern regions of the country.

Yet more evidence that pressure is building up in earth's interior causing not only earthquake activity to pick up, but also increasing volcanic activity. People need to be prepared for these sort of changes. Unfortunately 25 people were killed after the volcano erupted.

It is quite an active volcano.

It is the second time that the volcano has erupted this year.

It reared its ugly head in February when it sent ash over a mile into the sky.

Volcán de Fuego was continuously active throughout 2017, and has been erupting vigorously since 2002; there have been historical observations of eruptions dating back to 1531.

Unfortunately it will only get worse.

Despite claims by some that what has been happening in places like Guatemala "is normal", it is not. Guatemalan themselves are stating that they have never seen such powerful explosions that lately have been occurring at the "Fuego" volcano.

A second eruption occurred yesterday which caused new evacuations to occur. There are again many missing as lava, and mud swept through another area.

There have also been areas from which ash is erupting from the ground close to roads and other areas. (This is not the main volcano)
