Pacaya volcano erupts in Guatemala

May 31, 2013 GUATEMALAGuatemala’s Pacaya volcano has erupted, authorities said. Sending volcanic material more than 400 meters in the air, the eruption could intensify with ash risiging as high as 1000 to 2000 meters, the Institute of Vulcanology said. This could pose a threat to Guatemala’s air traffic. “Ash could spread over Guatemala City due to the direction of the wind,” the country’s disaster response office said in a statement. The last major eruption of the 2552 metre-high Pacaya was in May 2010 and claimed the life of a television journalist. Thousands of people fled from their homes and the eruption forced the closure of the Guatemala City airport for five days. The volcano is located 50 kilometres south of the capital and is one of three active volcanoes in Guatemala. –TVNZ
