New update on the Guatemala earthquake from our Good Neighbors Guatemala offices: An emergency response team from Good Neighbors Guatemala has met with representatives from the National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction (CONRED) in San Marcos to assess damages from the November 7th earthquake, which has affected nearly 1.3 million Guatemalans. GNG also went to the Municipality of San Antonio, where they met with the Vice Mayor and planned initial distributions of emergency kits consisting of water and non-perishable food. Visits were made to the villages of Candelaria Siquival (located 15 minutes to the south-west of the Municipality of San Antonio) and San Miguel de los Altos, (a refugee camp to the north east) which were two of the most heavily damaged villages in the region. According to CONRED, as of Thursday Nov. 8, 52 deaths had been reported, 40 of which occurred in San Marcos, while 22 were reported missing and 150 wounded. There has been widespread property damage and nearly 3,000 residents have been forced to evacuate their homes. In the coming days, Good Neighbors Guatemala will be aiding 1,000 families in San Marcos as they continue rescue and relief efforts.
