People wait for a bus in Santa Lucia Cotzumalguapa, Escuintla, on September 14, 2012 to go back to their homes in Morelia, Chimaltenango, south Guatemala City, a day after being evacuated following the eruption of the Volcan de Fuego. Eruptions at Guatemala's Volcano of Fire weakened Friday, one day after powerful blasts sent columns of smoke and ash high into the sky and forced authorities to order a mass evacuation. The number and intensity of eruptions had dropped to the point that emergency officials said they could allow some of the people ordered to flee on Thursday to return home. Authorities said they evacuated about one-third of the 33,000 area residents that they were prepared to shelter if eruptions intensified.
