Volcano Spreads Ash Across Western Guatemala


The Associated Press

GUATEMALA CITY -- An eruption at Guatemala's Santiaguito volcano has sent a plume of ash 27,300 feet (8,300 meters) above sea level, dusting parts of at least four provinces.

Disaster response agency spokesman David De Leon says the volcano has calmed since Monday's big burst - though it is still seeing weak to moderate explosions.

De Leon says the eruption damaged local flower harvests, but caused no injuries. The agency says schools were closed in 10 communities as a precaution and flights have been banned for 12 miles (20 kilometers) around the volcano.

Santiaguito is a crater on the slope of the 12,375-foot (3,772-meter) Santa Maria volcano about 120 miles (200 kilometers) northwest of Guatemala City.

  1. GUNSMOKE so would be to risk sensory overload. So, we can see that the main issues when deciding whether to GUNSMOKE DVD or not GUNSMOKE DVD COLLECTION are related to time, finding appropriate films in terms of content and comprehensibility, and whether showing a segment or the whole film is most beneficial. Consequently, we have tried to eliminate all of these potential constraints by making movies available as extracurricular activities rather than as a set part of the curriculum.

  2. Hilariously, the main character of the show is named JAG, and yet, our beloved real Matt Dillon is nowhere in consideration (he's busy starring in Armored and JAG DVD). The studio wants Pitt because he was pretty convincing in The Assassination of Jesse James, while Ryan Reynolds wants on board because he apparently playing both The Green Lantern and JAG DVD COLLECTION isn't keeping him busy enough.
