>> At least 99 people have now been confirmed dead in this week's volcano eruption in Guatemala. 20-year-old Erick Rivas was one of them. On Wednesday, the small village of Alotenango mourned his death as rescuers elsewhere raced to find survivors and victims. Some 200 people are still missing after the Fuego volcano eruption on Sunday, its biggest in decades.
Survivors like Gladys Hernandez are coming to terms of the disaster that's devastated vast areas of the country.>>
> I am suffering, but I am still alive, I am still speaking. When I saw it I said, all this isn't a volcano, it's the end of the world, it all made me think.
>> The volcano erupted a second time on Tuesday, triggering more evacuations and disrupting rescue efforts, sending workers scrambling for cover. On Wednesday, they were back using metal rods to probe through quickly hardening ash in the desperate search for anyone still alive underneath. International Red Cross and Red Crescent have release more than $250,000 to help a front line relief.
They said the funds will support the 3,000 most vulnerable survivors for three months. Guatemala's National Disaster Agency says, so far the eruption has affected the lives of 1.7 million people, and 12,000 have been evacuated.>>
