New Evacuations Near Guatemala Volcano Set Off Panic

Iyawa, who is also Nigeria's Ambassador to Mexico, and the non-resident ambassador to the Republic of Panama, in a condolence letter, said Buhari considered Guatemala one of Nigeria's most important allies in Central America.

The eruption spewed ash as far as 40 miles away.

The death toll had stood at 75 on Tuesday.

"Nobody is going to be able to get them out or say how many are buried here", Efrain Suarez told The Associated Press.

Displaced people travel on a motorcycle from an area affected by the eruption of Fuego volcano in Escuintla, Guatemala June 5, 2018.

Rescuers, police and journalists hurried to leave the area as a siren wailed and loudspeakers blared, "Evacuate". Thousands of people have been evacuated, CONRED said.

About 2,500 people were in shelters in Escuintla after being forced to flee their homes in surrounding villages.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday night spoke with Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales, and offered him condolences for the deaths caused by the country's catastrophic volcanic eruption.

Earlier in the day, the country's National Institute of Forensic Sciences said 75 bodies have been recovered but only 23 of those have been identified.

The speed of the eruption took locals by surprise, and could be explained by it producing pyroclastic flows, sudden emissions of gas and rock fragments, rather than lava, said volcanologist David Rothery of Britain's Open University. "To see people suffering like this is hard on them".

A spokesman for Guatemala's firefighters said that once it reaches 72 hours after the eruption, there will be little chance of finding anyone alive.

In the devastated town of El Rodeo, gray soot coated trees and homes and an ash-covered deer lay dead in the debris.

The volcano exploded Sunday, sending down superhot clouds of gas and ash that killed at least 70 people in communities on its flanks. Rescuers are still digging, but not for survivors. Numerous victims are unrecognisable, with officials warning that DNA testing and other methods may be needed to identify them.

Experts warned Wednesday that heavy rains in the area could provoke avalanches due to the large flows of volcanic mud, known as lahars, since the eruption on Sunday.

General Walter Sanchez, in charge of operations around the epicenter of the destruction near the village of El Rodeo, said the heat from the ash and hot sediment made rescue work hard.
