Land of ash Watch devastation left behind by Guatemala’s Fuego volcano

Explosions boomed from Guatemala's Fuego volcano Wednesday, unleashing fresh torrents of mud and ash down slopes and hindering search and rescue efforts, as the death toll from a previous eruption rose to at least 99.

According to volcanologists, eruption records of Fuego volcano, one of the country's most active volcanoes, dates back to 1542.

"We already have data with names and locations where there are missing persons and that number is 192", Sergio Cabanas, head of Guatemala's disaster management agency, told reporters.

Guatemalan officials have confirmed 99 dead, with many more missing. A photograph taken shortly after the disaster showed their bodies huddled together on a bed in the corner of a room, covered in white ash and blood.

Subsoil temperatures hit up to 700 degrees during the height of the eruption, and now the search is well under way clearing the rubble of shattered homes, looking for bodies.

David de Leon, a spokesman for the national disaster agency CONRED, said the search may resume if ground conditions in the lava-ravaged area improve.
