Guatemala is covered by volcanic ashes

Guatemala City is coveredy by the black sand and ashes that the Volcano Pacaya launched yesterday during its eruption.
Guatemalan citizens are helping to clean the streets, but unfortunately, many people have lost their houses. The international La Aurora airport is closed, and also are two dead persons, including a TV journalist.
The volcano is 2.552 meters high, is located in the southern parth of the country, about 50 kilometers from the Guatemala City.
