In Guatemala, Fuego volcano has erupted for the fifth time this year, sending bursts of ash and lava down the mountain.
The Disaster Management Agency said, a red has been issued and some 4,000 people were taken to temporary shelters as a precaution. Dozens of residents are being sheltered in tents at a Stadium in Escuintla.
The agency said, a column of ash rose about a kilometre above the crater and areas around the volcano, near Guatemala City, were under a barrage of gas ash and fiery rocks. (AIR)
