Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego erupted on the morning of September 13, 2012.
According to the Coordinadora Nacional para la Reducción de Desastres ((CONRED), the eruption included ash emissions to the west, and a 500-meter (2,000-foot) long lava flow. CONRED also warned of pyroclastic flows that could descend the mountain in any direction. Ashfall is reported around villages Panimaché, Morelia and Hagia Sophia on the southwest side.
Lava flow is seen on the canyon Taniluya, 500 meters long with constant material detachment reaching vegetation. This phase of eruption, as in previous ones, generated pyroclastic flows in Canyon Las Lajas.
