99 killed in Guatemala volcano eruption

Volcanic rocks are seen around destroyed houses after the eruption of the Fuego volcano

The US is sending emergency aid to Guatemala following the devastating eruption.

The 37-year-old woman lived in the nearby village of San Miguel Los Lotes, which was devastated by a wave of superheated material and debris.

The charity organization said that the loss of a family's horse, donkey, or mule, makes it very hard for them to continue to support themselves.

Her father Pedro Orizabal says he is saying goodbye to his daughter "with great pain". "May God bless all the family that is still standing".

Almost 100 people have been confirmed dead by authorities.

Officials said the toll was expected to rise.

"Now this request goes to the global community to allow assistance to Guatemala", the nation's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Many had very little time to evacuate.

"The United States is also sending aircraft to assist in transporting burn victims of this awful event for treatment in Texas", the White House said. Guatemala recently moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, following a recent similar move by the U.S.

Guatemalan officials have confirmed 99 dead, with many more missing. Anyone who is interested can contribute toward the recovery efforts by donating online. A fiery volcanic eruption in south-central Guatemala sent lava flowing into rural communities, killing dozens as rescuers struggled to reach people where homes and roads were charred and blanketed with ash.

The activity of Fuego was being monitored on Sunday when it erupted, but officials initially declared an evacuation would not be needed.

Subsoil temperatures hit up to 700 degrees during the height of the eruption, and now the search is well under way clearing the rubble of shattered homes, looking for bodies. Right? But we didn't do it to them, and these kids need help. "We will have to resort to other anthropological methods and if it is possible to take DNA samples to identify them".

Nohemi Ascon, 41, is the aunt of six children between the ages of one and eight who died in Los Lotes.

Associated Press writer Mark Stevenson reported this story in San Miguel Los Lotes and AP writer Sonia Perez D. reported from Escuintla.

Manafort hit with new charges in Russian Federation probe

Oscar Chávez trekked over a mountain with his father and younger brother to search for his brother Edgar, sister-in-law Sandra and four-year-old nephew Josue in the hamlet. They have not been heard from since the eruption. "And if heavy machinery comes in they will be torn apart".

A group of police officers saw what the family was doing and came to lend shovels and help with the digging.

David de Leon, a spokesman for the national disaster management agency, CONRED, instead residents should continue to steer clear from unsafe areas in the region.

Rains have been hitting the area and the agency says climatic conditions as well as the still-hot volcanic material deposited on the villages makes it risky for the rescuers.

"My father, my mother, my sisters are there", she said, upset over rescuers' decision to suspend their search.

He urged residents to stay away from the area, which is about 40 kilometers southwest of Guatemala City.

But by Wednesday morning, rescuer workers were back at work with pickaxes, metal rods and flashlights in hand, risking their own lives in search of victims or a miracle survivor.

"The activity continues and the possibility of new pyroclastic flows in the next hours or days can not be ruled out, so it is recommended not to remain near the affected area", it said.
