On June 3, the eruption of the volcano Fuego, located about 40 kilometers southwest of Guatemala City, impacted 1.7 million people. Search and rescue efforts continue and the numbers of those who lost their lives or are still missing change from day to day.
More than 3,000 people have been evacuated and many are seeking refuge in shelters. the situation could become worse because heavy rains are expected and potential mudslides of ash and debris will make recovery even more difficult.
