Volcano Triggers Yellow Alert in 3 Guatemalan Departments


GUATEMALA -  Three Guatemalan departments are under yellow alert, as a preventive measure in the face of the sustained activity of Fuego Volcano.

Sacatepequez, Chimaltenango, and Escuintla keep a wary eye on the evolution in coming days of the colossal, volcano, 3,763 meters above sea level.

The volcano is being monitored by the National Coordinating Office for Disaster Reduction, and the National Institute of Seismology, Vulcanology, Meteorology, and Hydrology.

The Institute has recently registered weak and moderate explosions, with thick grey ashes spewing forth from the volcano, some as high as 500 to 800 meters.

Such explosions are generating shock waves felt as far as seven kilometres (about 4.3 miles) from the crater, as well as constant moderate avalanches.
