GUATEMALA CITY: The Santiaguito volcano showered sand and ash Monday over a large area of western Guatemala in an "unusual" and "violent"
eruption, the national seismological institute said.
Winds were carrying the ash in a northeasterly direction from the volcano, 2,500 metres (7,500 feet) above sea level in the province of
Quetzaltenango, 206 kilometres (123 miles) west of the capital, it said.
The ash plume spread across six provinces, raising fears of damage to crops, the institute said, while classes were suspended at schools in three
The national disaster reduction coordination agency CONRED increased its alert level to orange, one level below the maximum red, its director
Alejandro Maldonado said.
The volcanic activity propelled gray ash more than 27,000 feet (8,300 metres) into the air, and Conred advised civil aviation authorities to ban
flying within 15 kilometres (nine miles) of the volcano.
Santiaguito's worst eruption occurred in 1929 when 2,500 people were killed.
There's something extremely odd going on lately in my opinion. Random Volcanic Eruptions from Volcanos that previously lay dormant, in come cases
for over 200yrs. Geographically "strange" earthquakes, Freak tides etc. Are these signs that there is something "Bullying" our Planet?
