Lava- and ash-ravaged landscape in Guatemala after volcano eruption

One picture taken by a European satellite, the Sentinel-2, on Monday (June 4) showed the centre of the volcano as a bright, red spot with lava coming up and flowing down as a brown mass.

Volcan de Fuego, which means “Volcano of Fire”, exploded on Sunday (June 3) in its most devastating eruption in more than four decades, showering ash on a wide area and sending rapid pyroclastic flows through nearby towns.

The volcano shot thick plumes of ash miles (km) into the sky that rained down on nearby towns and a thick smouldering layer of ash and volcanic rock blanketed the tiny hamlet of San Miguel Los Lotes, with only the roofs of some homes sticking out.
