(TEP) – Thousands of people in eastern El Salvador are leaving their homes after a volcano erupted on Sunday morning. Residents in the coffee-producing region said they had heard a powerful explosion before the Chaparrastique volcano began spewing hot ash and smoke into the air. The eruption came with little or no warning. No one has been hurt, say the authorities. Anyone living in a 3km (2 mile) radius will be evacuated. Temporary shelters are being set up in the area.
