[World News]: Mexico City, Jan 9 : Guatemala has declared a state of alert after three volcanoes in the south American nation has become active again, almost simultaneously, reports Xinhua.

Hugo Hernandez, a spokesman for the National Disaster Management Coordination, said the preventive alarm was meant to keep vigilance over the three volcanoes, Pacaya, Santiaguito and Fuego.

Over the past week, the three have been spewing out lava, ashes and rocks in a low magnitude, forcing local inhabitants to be evacuated. This is after a gap of 31 years that the three volcanoes have become active almost simultaneously.

hahahaha klc! its been a loooong week..you can be a smartass me gots a thick skin cool ok this is what I was just told...

Yes, the alert level down there has gone away insomuch as this is considered a full scale eruption,but intensity could still increase. Many will lose their homes and villas in the immediate lava flow seeps. Your news will begin carrying updated details any day now.
