A volcano erupted near Guatemala City, Guatemala, Sunday, resulting in mass devastation for the country’s capital and its inhabitants.

Stunning videos have emerged on social media, showing the terrifying power possessed by Mother Nature.

The search for victims continues into Monday. The eruption resulted in the deaths of at least 38 people, in addition to the hundreds of injuries that occurred from the eruption of Volcan de Fuego, or “Volcano of Fire.”

Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales has declared a state of emergency and three days of national mourning.

Some countries, such as the G13 nations and Israel, have already started to dedicate resources toward assisting the relief effort.
