Evacuations amid fears for volcanic eruption

Columbia, S.A.
A possible new eruption of the Nevado del Huila volcano forced authorities to evacuate villages and settlements at risk of being flooded in case of an eruption.
The mudslide following an eruption of the volcano in November last year killed several people and destroyed a large part of Belalcázar, a town on the banks of the Rio Paéz.
About 4,000 people living near the river are now evacuated.
Disaster authorities are monitoring the volcano and will evaluate how long the people will be forced to stay away from their homes.
