Storm Leaves Thousands Homeless in C. America

Ad Feedback

More than 100,000 people in Central America are homeless after a deadly tropical storm swept across several countries.

Torrential rains from Tropical Storm Agatha drenched southern Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala, flooding rivers and causing massive mudslides.

The storm claimed at least 99 lives, including 82 in Guatemala alone.

The rains are just the latest catastrophe for Guatemala. A volcano eruption last week killed at least one person and forced the evacuation of 1,500 people.

CBN's Operation Blessing International is in Guatemala, providing critical food and water to people in the shelters.

"They don't have clothes, they don't have food and the government is trying to hope," Operation Blessing worker Mario Bucaro said. "But at this moment they don't have any place that they can go."
