    Thousands flee as Guatemala's Fuego volcano erupts again

    Almost 4,000 people have been evacuated from the slopes of the Fuego volcano in Guatemala. The stratovolcano southwest of the city of Antigua began erupting on Sunday, with ash and lava spewing from its crater. It comes five months after almost 200 people were buried by volcanic ash and mud during a violent eruption in June. That eruption generated pyroclastic flows - fast-moving mixtures of very hot gas and volcanic matter - which descended down the slopes, engulfing communities such as El Rodeo and San Miguel Los Lotes.

    This will only increase the number of migrants heading north. Nobody wants to live near an erupting volcano. They must take care not to migrate too far north, though, or they will end up in the shadow of the active volcanoes in the American Northwest.

    Probably still a lot safer than the shadow of Fuego - I'm not sure quite how many live volcanoes there are in California Oregon and Washington State but they seem to muster about one or two eruptions per century between the lot of them (Mount St Helens 1980 obviously, I think the previous one was Lassen Peak in 1917?) whereas Fuego is on its second this year.

    The Pacific Northwest of the U.S. is supposed to be in for the most violent and cataclysmic earthquake/tsunami the world has ever seen, and reputable scientists say it's long overdue. Millions will die. The migrants should settle no further north than Southern California.
