Antigua on alert as Volcano Fuego sends ash soaring into the sky

Ezekiel 38:20 “Mountains shall be overthrown, cliffs shall topple, and every wall shall crumble to the ground.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Fuego Volcano Erupts Sending Lava and Ash Soaring Into Sky Above Antigua
  • Volcan de Fuego’s eruptions have consisted of weak explosions, resulting in a tall cloud of ash above the mountain, as well as lava being flung over 1,600 feet above the crater.
  • “The Fuego volcano showed an increase in its activity, which in the last minutes has entered an eruption phase […] The eruption is mostly effusive accompanied by incandescent pulses from the lava source,” the Guatemalan Institute of Volcanology (Insivumeh) said in a statement.
  • No evacuations have been put into place, Rodolfo García, spokesperson for the National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction (Conred), the entity in charge of civil protection, said in a statement.
  • The Fuego eruption comes just two weeks after the eruption of Mauna Loa in Hawaii, the largest active volcano in the world
  • Two more unrelated volcanoes then erupted a week later on December 4: Mount Semeru, 400 miles southeast of Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, and Stromboli, off the north coast of Sicily.
