8:02 am
quite active right now it's still in this relative phase and so rescuers are being very careful about how they are approaching these villages that are still cut off they want to make sure one rescuer has already be killed and they want to avoid any more feed tallies and so i think that some of these search and rescue operations are going to be toned back a little bit until the morning hours now we've just entered the rainy season here as well it's not raining currently where i am about twenty five kilometers away from the volcano but that could change during the night which would further complicate the rescue mission that has flown out down onto a main highway which would provide access as rescue workers to these villages on the flanks of the volcano that had been most affected so they haven't been able to get in there yet so this is a major disaster here in one i'm all in one that's very much still in the making how many little that live around the area and how many people today that.
8:03 am
well directly affected by these by these explosions it's not a huge populations are mainly farming villages that are located on the flanks of the volcano but the greater area where ash was falling. would it would affect more than a million people about a million and a half people fell the ash tell us far away as one of the city's some forty some odd kilometers away closing down the international airport as you mention so it certainly has been affecting people from a large a large part of this the central part of this country transportation and so forth the roads were filled with this volcanic ash is very difficult to see out of windshields and so i think traffic accidents as well were caused by this but right now all eyes are on the rescue efforts on the flanks and you know and david given that the says one of the central america's most active volcano is that it has erupted in the pos were there any precautions that were put in place for something
8:04 am

8:05 am
well they're certainly hoping there's not really tonight and they will be hoping that one morning they will be able to don't get any further. back to these and more morning they will be able to get to some of these impacted sites that's what they're going to be hoping for no really and no more dogmatic rushes during the night but we're going to have to wait and see what the morning or i'll go ahead thank you very much for that for now that's our correspondent david meserve with the very latest live in guatemala city thank you. let's move on to other news now at least fifty five people including six children have died and two boy tragedies in the military mediterranean sea both pilots were carrying refugees trying to enter europe illegally a speed boat sank while crossing from turkey to the greek islands and the tennessee and coast guard is searching for survivors from a refugee boat so far sixty eight people along with nearly fifty bodies have been
