Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-03920
Residents of Antigua Guatemala have observed eruptions at Volcán de Fuego for several centuries. A larger ash plume towers above the city in this October 1974 view of one of Fuego's largest historical eruptions. Pyroclastic flows are also descending the east flank (left). The local topography diverted pyroclastic flows and lahars down drainages to the east and south.
