The death toll from landslides in Guatemala has risen to 54. Officials in the country said that up to another 100 people may have been buried overnight by a second landslide on a major highway outside the capital.
According to the latest reports, a major landslide on the Inter American highway in the Alaska zone, west of Guatemala City, buried five vehicles and a passenger bus.
A second landslide reportedly occurred when the rescue teams were trying to dig out the victims buried by the first one.
Later, a third landslide hit the same highway but in a different section, reportedly killing 12 people and injuring 20 others.
President Colom declared on Saturday a state of national emergency. The Guatemalan government has evacuated more than 4,000 people and has estimated that 20,000 more are at risk.
