Crews Work to Reach Stranded Guatemalans

Ad Feedback

Emergency crews in the Central American nation of Guatemala on Tuesday were still trying to reach isolated communities left stranded by the weekend's floods.

Tropical Storm Agatha killed 123 people and forced the evacuation of more than 100,000 people in the area.

Heavy rains caused rivers to overflow their banks, destroying homes and washing out roads.

In addition, ash from an erupting volcano has covered the roads, hampering relief efforts.

CBN'S Operation Blessing International is in Guatemala, delivering much needed food, water and other supplies to the country's survivors.

Besides helping to clean out homes, teams are also providing spiritual comfort to the victims.
