The death toll from Guatemala’s volcanic explosion has risen to 62 as a hot flow of mud, ash and gas swept down from Guatemala’s Fuego volcano on Monday following a new explosion in the morning. Volcan de Fuego, which translates to ‘volcano of fire’, known to be one of Central America’s most active, destroyed homes and blanketed nearby villages in soot as it sent clouds of ash six miles into the air. Search and rescue operations for the missing and dead were resuming this morning using heavy machinery and shovels, after they had to be suspended due to low light and dangerous conditions last night.
