Fuego volcano (Guatemala): update on the deadly eruption of Sun 3 June 2018

More details slowly emerge about Sunday's deadly eruption, which now ranks as the largest of the volcano since 1974. The national disaster mitigation agency CONRED gave the official number of fatalities as 25 (as of yesterday) while from other sources it seems that clear there were far more, at least 60+, lives lost in this eruption.
Sadly, there is plenty of reason to believe that the figures will rise much higher still as many places covered by deep, hot ashes are still inaccessible, and many of the severely injured (skin burns mainly) might not survive.
Over 3,000 people have been evacuated, mainly from the area of El Rodeo (SE side) which was hardest hit and partially burnt and covered by the unusually large pyroclastic flows. A good part of the known golf resort La Reunión was also hit and covered by hot ash.
The largest pyroclastic flow reached the unusual length of approx. 10 km to the SSE in the continuation of Las Lajas canyon. Pyroclastic flows are hot, fast-moving avalanches of ash and rock debris of all sizes, that wipe out everything in their path. The deadly one that hit El Rodeo on Sunday reached up to approx. 10 km length and ranks as one of the biggest in the world during the past 20 years. Images of the volcano's flank reveal that where it originated a deep scar, or crater is now left on the upper SE flank (image).
This suggests that the eruption involved a large, perhaps partially side-ways directed blast, or explosion that ejected a huge mass of rock at once, probably caused by a zone of overpressurized rock and gas in the upper part of the cone. This would also explain that the height of the ash plume first rose to unusual 10+ km then decreased to 5-6 km for most of the eruptive phase.

The social media and international news are full with images of the eruption. Some particularly interesting videos are embedded:
Impressive video from the lava fountaining (early) stage of the paroxysm at Fuego:

In the following, chilling video, the first surge of the large pyroclastic flow hitting the national road near El Rodeo (s. image for location) can be seen. Spectators are obviously unaware of the potential far reach of the approaching flow, and only start running when it is almost too late. The scariest moment is at the very end of the video, when the denser base of the flow (last seconds) overtops the road and panic sets in. We hope everyone in this video managed to safety in time, but if so, it was a close call.

Понедельник, июн 04, 2018
A strong eruptive phase (paroxysm) occurred at the volcano yesterday (Sun 3 June). Lasting for about 16-17 hours until the evening, it generated ash clouds reaching up to 10 km, which drifted into westerly directions for more than 40 km, lava flows descending on the flanks, heavy ash fall in nearby areas and secondary mud flows triggered by strong rainfall. ...
