Why Are The Kilauea And Fuego Volcano Eruptions So Different?

Guatemala's Fuego volcano exploded again on Tuesday, sending rescue workers scrambling for cover beneath the smoking peak, as the death toll from the weekend's eruption rose to at least 72.

The official death toll has passed 70 but there are many more missing.

Rescuers are now waiting for authorities to declare whether it is safe or not to resume searching for any survivors or bodies. Experts say the volcano emitted something different than what has been seen in Hawaii, a pyroclastic flow.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said they have released more than 250,000 Swiss francs ($253,446) from its global emergency fund to support frontline emergency efforts. Numerous victims are unrecognisable, with officials warning that DNA testing and other methods may be needed to identify them.

"The conditions are extremely critical at this moment", Eddy Sanchez, director of Guatemala's National Institute of Seismology, Vulcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology, said. It said in a statement that a so-called lahar about 30 to 40 metres wide and 4 to 5 metres high was descending through the Seca and Mineral Canyons toward the Pantaleon river. Associated Press journalists witnessed the recovery of at least eight bodies, including five stretchers loaded with body bags in Los Lotes. The remains were wrapped in bags. Meanwhile, the eruption that covered the area near the volcano with a mix of hot gas and volcanic flows and devoured whole communities on Sunday, resumed on Tuesday.

An elderly man, who was featured in a video shortly after the eruption that showed him in a state of shock, caked from head to toe in ash and mud, died from the severe burns he suffered.

The sudden eruption of Mount Ontake kills more than 60 people in Japan's worst volcanic disaster in almost 90 years.

There were places for Sane's City team-mate Ilkay Gundogan , Arsenal's Mesut Ozil and Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger . Sane impressed throughout the season, having scored 10 goals and provided 15 assists in 28 league appearances.

But in places like Los Lotes and the village of El Rodeo, about eight miles downslope from the crater, it was too late for many. Smoke from the still-hot debris below rises from holes in the hellish terrain.

They have been helping children and families in Guatemala for ten years. "And if heavy machinery comes in they will be torn apart".

However, the prospects of finding any more survivors was poor, he said.

On an open-air patio at Murray D. Lincoln school in the nearby city of Escuintla, several people sat on plastic chairs covered by aprons as volunteers attended to them on Wednesday.

"President Buhari considers Guatemala as one of the closest allies Nigeria has in Central America and will, therefore, always share and identify with any development, progress or tragedy, with the government and the people of Guatemala", the letter said.

Diaz added that she did a cut for one woman who had several inches of her hair singed.
