  • Hundreds are still missing after the Fuego volcano spewed torrents of hot ash and gas over towns and villages

The death toll from Sunday's violent volcanic eruption in Guatemala rose to 99, the country's forensic agency said on Wednesday.

Rescue efforts in eruption zone suspended citing danger to workers; chances of finding anyone alive in still-steaming terrain nearly nil.

Their families will also get on-site housing.

At least 99 people have been confirmed killed by the eruption, a number that is expected to rise further with almost 200 still missing.

"I am burying my daughter with great pain", said Pedro Orizabal, her father.

Since the eruption, downpours and more volcanic activity had been hindering searches, but when teams have been able to work in the hardest hit areas, the death toll has continued to rise. Right? But we didn't do it to them, and these kids need help.

Sandra Orizabal was buried hurriedly and without the usual wake on the order of health authorities.

Rains have been hitting the area and the agency says climatic conditions as well as the still-hot volcanic material deposited on the villages makes it risky for the rescuers. We also don't know the children's exact ages, but some of them could be very young.

Firefighters said the chance of finding anyone alive amid the still-steaming terrain was practically nonexistent 72 hours after Sunday's volcanic explosion.

The U.S. government expressed its "deepest condolences" to the victims on Thursday and said it was sending emergency aid at Guatemala's request, including an unspecified amount of financial resources to help with food, water, and sanitation.

Six children burned in the Guatemala volcano eruption arrived in Galveston around 5 a.m. on Thursday and were taken to the Shriners Hospital for Children.

Associated Press journalists in Guatemala have seen workers carrying five stretchers of human remains out of San Miguel Los Lotes near the Volcano of Fire.

Volcan de Fuego, which means "Volcano of Fire" in Spanish, lies about 25 miles (40 km) southwest of the capital, Guatemala City. Officials said more pyroclastic flow is expected in the upcoming days.
