Why Are The Kilauea And Fuego Volcano Eruptions So Different?

Guatemalan authorities have warned the Fuego volcano is showing signs of greater activity, as the death toll from a devastating eruption at the weekend climbed to 75 and almost 200 people remained missing.

Cruz said firefighters dug up three bodies during their first hours of work in El Rodeo and San Miguel los Lotes, the two villages filled with small farmers that once nestled in the lush foothills of the volcano that were suddenly transformed into moonscapes by the eruption.

"They say they are going to leave them buried there, and we are not going to know if it's really them", the 39-year-old farmer said. DNA testing and other methods will be required to identify them.

The National Institute of Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology (Insivumeh) in Guatemala has reported that lava flow formed on the north side of the Pacaya Volcano.

Officials are also anxious that rain in the forecast could trigger mudslides like one in the San Pedro Soloma area that killed 12 people a year ago, and another that struck in the mountain Village of El Cambray in October 2015 that killed 280 people and destroyed more than 200 homes. Meanwhile, the eruption that covered the area near the volcano with a mix of hot gas and volcanic flows and devoured whole communities on Sunday, resumed on Tuesday.

But in places like Los Lotes and the village of El Rodeo, about eight miles downslope from the crater, it was too late for many.

Standing amid the wreckage on Wednesday, he said any bodies below are surely severely damaged, and if heavy machinery comes, it will tear up their remains.

She explained there is a great need for clothing and mattresses because shelters are not equipped with them and she urged people to pray for Guatemala and its people.

CONRED expects 1.7 million people to be affected by the eruption, with some fleeing just ahead of fast-moving lava flows that reached 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit.

He was reported to have died attempting to rescue people during the eruption.

Diaz added that she did a cut for one woman who had several inches of her hair singed.

Authorities have said the window is closing on the chances of finding anyone else alive in the devastation.
