The Guatemala volcano is still active

The Fuego volcano in Guatemala continues to throw rocks and ash, almost two days after a major eruption that killed at least 69 people.

The National Institute of Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology reported that the colossus was emitting from 8 to 10 moderate explosions per hour on Tuesday morning, although the level of activity is much lower than on Sunday.

That eruption took residents of mountainous villages unprepared and many had little or no time to get to safety.

The volcano has been erupting since 2002.

The international community has offered its help to Guatemala after the explosion of the Volcano of Fire that on Sunday registered a catastrophic eruption.

The President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, offered Morales assistance in civil protection matters for the rescue and assistance to the victims.


The government of Panama offered its humanitarian support and activated the Information Coordination Center (Cecodi) of the Foreign Ministry, which will be operating 24 hours a day, so that Panamanians who are in Guatemala can be contacted.

The Ecuadorian president, Lenin Moreno, offered the help of his country to face the effects of the eruption of the volcano and expressed that his prayers are with those affected.

Chile expressed its “solidarity with the wounded and material damages” and made itself available to collaborate in whatever the Guatemalan government requires.

The Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs acting, Alfonso Dastis, showed his solidarity with Guatemala today and assured that Spain is “studying the best way to help” the country to recover from the catastrophe.

In addition to the mentioned countries, there are more countries that are adding to help Guatemala
