It sits about 16 kilometers from the colonial city of Antigua. The volcano is joined with Acatenango and collectively the complex is known as La Horqueta. On September 13, 2012, the volcano once again began spewing lava and ash, prompting officials to begin "a massive evacuation of thousands of people" in five communities. More specifically, the evacuees, roughly 33,000 people, left nearly 17 villages near the volcano.
