Pacaya volcano (Guatemala): lava fountains, 3 people killed, Guatemala airport closed
Friday May 28, 2010 06:50 AM |
On the evening of 27 May, Pacaya volcano entered a phase of violent lava fountaining reaching an height of about 1 km, and an ash plume reaching about 3-4 km elevation drifting north-west towards the capital.
At least 3 people were killed in the eruption, two villagers and a journalist who tried to approach the crater and was hit by bombs. According to newspapers, at least 9 children are missing, more than 20 people injured and thousands fled their homes or were evacuated. Many buildings were damaged.
Authorities evacuated the National Park of Pacaya and nearby villages and declared the state of emergency for the region. The significant ash fall caused traffic chaos in Guatemala city and the international airport to be closed.
The intensity of the explosions declined later in the evening, but scientists warn that new violent phases could follow.
