Volcan de Feugo, the extremely active volcano whose June eruption killed almost 200 people, is rumbling again.

Ash was seen emanating from the volcano’s crater on Nov. 16. Reuters reported around 4,000 people in the surrounding area have been evacuated.

Photos from yesterday and early today (Nov. 19) show glowing lava flowing from the volcano as residents packed up their belongings. There are still hundreds of people reported missing after the eruptions in June who remain unaccounted for.
