Five Killed in Muddy Landslide in Northern Guatemala

GUATEMALA The National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction of Guatemala (Conred) reported on Friday that it increased to five the number of deaths due to the mudflow released last Wednesday on the village of Pantic, Tamahu village, in the northern department of Alta Verapaz.

Conred spokesman David de Leon also warned that due to weather conditions in the sector the search for people on the site was suspended on Friday and will resume early on Saturday morning.

Authorities are still searching for three people missing since the landslide struck, which also resulted in one wounded, 200 evacuated and 25 homes damaged.

On Friday morning, Conred reported two deaths: Rosario Sam, 58, and a 10-day-old baby who had not yet been enrolled in the National Register of Persons (Renap).

Friday afternoon, the bodies of Gladys Lorena Cal Lem, 17, Darlin Mariela Tut Sacba, 18, and 38-year-old Mary Can Sam, were recovered, according to official information.

The landslide was caused by the overflow of a ravine known as Pantic, which dragged tons of debris, mud and stones over the small community.
