A volcano southwest of Guatemala's capital has erupted for the second time this year on Sunday, spewing ash nearly six kilometers (four miles) into the sky.
At least 99 people are dead and almost 200 are missing following the eruption of Guatemala's Fuego volcano. About 12,000 people have been evacuated.
The eruption of Guatemala's Fuego volcano has killed at least 69 people, including children, and dozens more are unaccounted for. Nearby villages have been blanketed in ash, causing more than 3,200 people to evacuate.
Rescuers in Guatemala have been hindered in their rescue efforts as a downpour made for treacherous conditions below the Fuego volcano. Officials said the death toll has mounted to over 100.
As if a volcanic eruption wasn't dramatic enough, one of nature's most powerful phenomena can also trigger lightning — to truly breathtaking effect. How does this happen?
