The death toll1 from the eruption2 of the Fuego volcano in Guatemala has risen to 99 as more bodies were found Wednesday, according to Guatemala’s National Forensic3 Sciences Institute (INACIF).


The remains4 of 99 people have been sent to morgues, while just 28 have been identified so far, the INACIF said in a report.

“We already have data with names and locations where there are missing persons and that number is 192,” said Sergio Cabanas, head of Guatemala’s disaster management agency.

It has been over 72 hours after Sunday’s volcanic5 explosion, and firefighters assumed it is impossible to find anyone alive amid the still-steaming terrain6.

Explosions boomed from the 3,763-meter volcano Wednesday, unleashing7 a new flow of dangerous volcanic material. Emergency workers had to temporarily suspend their search late Tuesday after a new eruption triggered a landslide8.

The country’s seismology and volcanology institute warned of new flows descending9 Wednesday afternoon through canyons10 on the volcano’s western slope toward the Pantaleon River, carrying boulders11 and tree trunks.

Experts also warned that heavy rains in the area could provoke avalanches12 due to the large flows of volcanic mud, which had been hardened by the rainfall, causing a problem for the rescuers to get people out or figure out how many are still buried there.
