Volcanoes of Guatemala

Eruptions continue at three volcanoes in Guatemala. Incandescent lava flows are visible at Pacaya volcano, and a crater glow is visible at night. At Fuego volcano lava avalanches descend 300 m towards the south. Rumbling sounds were emitted from the crater. Lava avalanches occurred at Santa Maria volcano from Santiaguito lava dome. Ash emissions reach 1.5 km above the volcano.
