American Steel Carports would like to let those affected by the recent Volcano of Fire in Guatemala, know that our thoughts and prayers are with them. Our deepest condolences are with the victims and their families.

 

As most of you may know, the Volcano of Fire erupted on June 3, 2018. This has been one of the most powerful eruptions since 1974. The mud flow, and super heated debris switched directions after its eruptions and made its way down the mountain striking many small villages along its path. Many villagers were taken by surprise or simply didn’t have enough time to make it out of its path. Volcanic ash covered the skies as far as Guatemala City forcing the closure of La Aurora International Airport. 109 people have been confirmed dead, 200 missing and hundreds more were reported injured.

 

We would also like to recognize Shiner’s Hospital in Galveston, TX who have stepped in to treat 6 children who were badly burnt in the volcanic eruption and for all the hospitals on standby ready to take in more patients. Don’t forget to help our brothers in Guatemala.
