On Sunday, Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego — “Volcano of Fire” — erupted violently, spewing ash nearly four miles into the air and burying villages under an avalanche-like phenomenon called a pyroclastic flow.
The disaster’s fatalities had risen to 62 by Monday afternoon, with hundreds more injured. The death toll is expected to climb, and the country’s disaster agency said 3,265 people had been evacuated.
Despite the destruction so far, the worst may be yet to come.
In the wake of the "Volcan de Fuego" eruption, dozens of communities are in need of massive support to rebuild.
