A woman holding a cross watches lava flowing down the Pacaya volcano in San Vicente Pacaya, Guatemala, May 5, 2021. A river of lava created by a new fissure in the cone of the Pacaya volcano put the nearby population on alert. According to the Guatemalan Coordination for Disaster Reduction (CONRED), the new lava flow, about two kilometers long, maintained its slow westward course. The Catholic neighbors of the village of El Patrocinio have been making a pilgrimage every Wednesday for the past seven weeks to pray that the lava does not reach nearby towns.
