Nearly 200 missing, 73 dead in Guatemala volcano eruption

Women mourn as the coffins of seven people who died following the eruption of the Fuego volcano are carried along the streets of Alotenango

Officials are crossing-checking census data with aerial photos of homes, registers of people in shelters and lists of the missing and injured, Cabanas said.

CONRED, Guatemala's national disaster management agency, said 1.7 million residents were affected by the eruption, and 12,000 people have been evacuated, Reuters reported.

At least 75 people have died and almost 200 are missing in Guatemala after a second round of eruptions at Mount Fuego that scattered ash over a wide area and forced authorities to issue new evacuations.

The new explosion took many by surprise after volcanologists said the eruption, which had sent ash up to 10km into the sky on Sunday, was over for the near future.

President Jimmy Morales has been criticised on social media for passively waiting to react to offers of global aid.

"They also form without much warning from a collapse of part of the eruption plume", he said.

As rescuers work to search for almost 200 missing people, they're finding and rescuing pets as well.

Volcan de Fuego, which means "Volcano of Fire" in Spanish, lies about 25 miles (40 km) southwest of the capital, Guatemala City.

On Tuesday, Fuego volcano erupted again, unleashing a new flow of risky volcanic material.

She also lost in the 2014 final to Maria Sharapova with Caroline Wozniacki denying her in the Australian Open final in January. The victor of Thursday's semi-final will also decide the world number one spot which Muguruza held for four weeks a year ago .

According to Sanchez, Sunday's eruption is the most violent explosion of Fuego volcano since 1974.

"People here in San Felipe refuse to leave and that is why we are here", said this emergency worker". One More Child's Vice President Andrew Tattrie said members have been keeping the organization up to date with what's happening. The images show lava shooting into the air as a glowing flow of molten lava floods down the mountain and a cloud of boiling ash lands on villages.

Guatemalan officials warned of falling ash from the Fuego volcano late on Thursday and urged caution with flights as the Central American country recovers from devastating eruptions that have killed at least 109 people.

Emergency corps had to evacuate the so-called zone 0 of the tragedy today, in response to new rumbles and columns of smoke that emerge from the Fuego volcano, which apparently refuses to give peace to Guatemala.

"In a matter of three or four minutes the village disappeared", Castillo said, smothered in what he described as a "sea" of muck that came crashing into homes, inundating people, pets and wildlife.

Rubin says these clouds of ash and hot gas can not be outrun as they move downslope and spread out to long distances quickly.

Despite offers of global help from the United States, Mexico and several Latin American neighbours, Guatemalan authorities have not made a request for foreign aid.

In past disasters where authorities determined there was no chance of finding survivors and further efforts to recover bodies would be too hard, areas have been declared burial sites, the final resting place of the victims.

One person told reporters: "Nobody is going to be able to get them out or say how many are buried here".
