'Volcano Fuego' by Travicted Photography on Flickr

In Guatemala the Fuego Volcano erupted close to the popular tourist destination Antigua, killing 65 people and displacing up to 3000.

It is the biggest eruption in Guatemala in 40 years and the deadliest since the Santa Maria eruption in 1902 which killed thousands.

Hugh Hogan spoke with lecturer and research fellow Karin Orth from The University of Tasmania about the eruption, and how prediction models can be improved.
