Guatemala Volcano Urgent Needs

Please give generously

Although none of those who’ve died (currently reported 65) due to the devastation of the Guatemala volcano are Christians in Action Missions International national workers or missionaries, our folks are seeking to help survivors and those displaced as a result of the tragedy.

CNN reports:

“…Fuego has unleashed pyroclastic flow — a nasty mix of ash, rock, and volcanic gases that can be much more dangerous than lava.”

“This eruption at Fuego was explosive, sending hot debris down the steep sides of the volcano to make the pyroclastic flows,” said Erik W. Klemetti, associate professor of geosciences at Denison University.

He said pyroclastic flows can tumble down a volcano at hundreds of kilometers per hour — way faster than what people and even cars could outrun.
