GUATEMALA - Explosions and ash removal are now constant in the Pacaya volcano and is forecasted several more days of activity.

The volcano 1,552 meters high is located in Escuintla, 31.1 miles from the capital.

Almost two thousand people evacuated from the danger zone were counted until Friday, when as a direct result had also been reported one dead and more than 59 injured, none seriously, and three missing children.

Another deceased and several injured were added to this balance, but they were for cleaning up the sand on roofs of buildings in this city.

The report of the damages doe spot include crops because is too soon to have approximated numbers, but seems to be huge.

According to President Alvaro Colom financial resources will be directed to the recovery of that sector because he said there is sufficient.

Colom evaluated the situation of the eruption of Pacaya volcano as extremely serious and confirmed the mobilization of state institutions to face its consequences.

The President made a call to all Guatemalans to work in harmony and solidarity to overcome as soon as possible the emergency situation.
