Guatemala's Volcan de Fuego Erupts

Postby Wild » Sun Sep 16, 2012 8:01 pm

As some of you may know, the Volcan de Fuego (http://www.summitpost.org/volc-n-de-fuego/150356) near the City of Antigua, in Guatemala, erupted this week (September 13th, 2012). It was the biggest eruption since 1999, as it shot rocks up to 1,000 meters above and left a 2,000 ft. long lava flow. It looks like over 30,000 people were ordered to evacuate but many of them refused to do so.
