Central America Hit By Terrible Tropical Storm!

| Filed under: Sad Sad

sinkhole.jpg

OMG!

This is horrifying!!!

At least 115 people were killed this weekend when tropical storm Agatha traveled through Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Heavy rains and extreme winds caused massive mudslides that caused extreme devastation to all three of the Central American countries.

Guatemala was hit hardest, with at least 92 deaths, 54 people missing and 59 injured. In the northern part of Guatemala City, the extreme downpour of rain created a giant sinkhole that swallowed up a three-story building and a house, which you can see above.

How devastating!

We send our condolences to everyone who has been affected by this tragedy.

    shit. that's absolutely terrifying! i hope the residents of these areas get the aid they need at this tragic time.



  2. 2

    Maybe this odd sink hole was cause by our chronic need for oil. I'm not a scientist, but if you pump oil from the earths core for about a century…hmmm maybe it can cause a sink hole like this…It's epic and weird and scary as all get out.



  3. 3

    My prayers are with the family of the people who died…



  4. 4

    i'm salvadorian and it was very scary to see the rivers flooding everywhere and people left without homes..



  5. 5

    Is that a real picture??? Holy shit if it is.



  6. 6

    Wow, how deep does that hole even go, can't see the end of it. How very sad.



  7. 7

    are you fucking kidding? this looks like an entrance to hell.



  8. 8

    We are living in the last days…all of this has been predicted in the bible. Why are people still acting surprised??This world is in turmoil and soon it's all gonna be gone. Not to sound crazy or anything but seriously! Anybody, anywhere could be next. This world is just getting worse and worse everyday. I'll keep the victims in my prayers.



  9. 9

    Suspiciously symmetrical sink hole, ahem!
    .
    And if you haven't noticed, it's TUESDAY and this is OLD NEWS
    .
    And not Celeb News. Just because it happened to Latinos, you think we have to know?!



  10. 10

    Whoa, that hole is freaky…



  11. 11

    OMG how sad? I hope they find strength to move forward and get the help they need.



  12. 12

    Wow. Unreal.



  13. 13

    Holy shit…my prayers with those poor souls…xo



  14. 14

    Welcome to HELL. hahaha



  15. 15

    scariest thing ive ever seen. wow



  16. 16

    Why is there no talk of Photoshop here..? I would only believe a picture like this was real if I had taken it myself.



  17. 17

    That's really scary. I hope the people of Guatemala City will band together for strength and support through this. Very sad.



  18. 18

    OMG were people in those buildings when they fell in the hole? It would suck if some were still alive. And that hole looks photoshopped. It is perfectly round.



  19. 19

    I heard Jesse James was looking for a new home.

    I live in Guatemala City and now it's better. Things were really bad last week with the volcano eruption that shut the city down and Agatha at its best.

    That is the second hole that happens with big rains/tropical depressions, so it's now new. However the very slow government won't do anything unless they can profit from it.



  21. 21

    That is seriously so fucked up. That's also not photoshopped. A lot of the time sinkholes are perfectly round. Like the blue hole of belize.



  22. 22

    That picture is insane!! I'm sorry to hear there were so many deaths and injuries.

    And re:Mertelynski…you're a dumbass.

    DAAAAAAAAAAMNNNNNNNNNN



  24. 24

    Looks photoshopped. Someone needs to save America's Gulf Coast from the oil spill. Obama surely will not. Let Gov. Jindal handle this. He has some good ideas. Obama. You SUCK! Fewer memorial day picnics with Louis Farrakahn and more honoring your troops and saving the gulf coast you sh*thead.



  25. 25

    THE WORLD IS ENDING

    Re: El loco Norwegian – @ 16- agreed - looks totally fabricated…..



  27. 27

    Re: El loco Norwegian – there are pics of it all over the place also……idk what to believe!!!!



  28. 28

    This picture isn't photoshoped, that is what sinkholes look like. A few weeks ago there was a sinkhole in Quebec that swallowed up a whole house. Its all very sad.



  29. 29

    photoshop



  30. 30

    Re: Buk0wski – you know obama did not cause the oil spill, right? that was all bp and the oil hungry minions.



  31. 31

    Re: cindydeesam1 – Believe in whatever you will, but mass casualty events and disasters are nothing new. It's simply that now there are human communities spawning practically every inch of the globe wherever disaster strikes, plus events like this saturate the modern media. Don't live in fear, DO something about it! Volunteer! I grow tired of hearing religious people cry out "end of times" without doing a damn thing.



  32. 32

    I am from Guatemala, and my country is suffering so bad, Im in PA now wising I was back home to hel, please pray or help pout anyway you can!



  33. 33

    I am from Guatemala, and my country is suffering so bad, Im in PA now wising I was back home to hel, please pray or help pout anyway you can! THANX PEREZ for covering the story!



  34. 34

    thats insaneeeeeeeee…..its huge those poor people i hope they get help



  35. 35

    ARE you serious?????? You send condolences to someone who's lost a family member or friend. This is a huge amount of people suffering loss, and devestation. You were better to not have said a word.



  36. 36

    Re: cindydeesam1 – God, you're dumb. Yes, this photo is crazy but the world is not ending. People have been saying dumb shit like you said for thousands of years. I don't remember the bible predicting The Jersey Shore. Did Luke talk about Tila Tequila? Did Revelations discuss Team Coco?



  37. 37

    Come on people! Seriously? Am I really seeing people say that it is photoshopped??? Look at the Great Blue Hole of Belize! It is shaped as a perfect circle! Sometimes sink holes are shaped in perfect circles.
    Please research stuff before you speak!!!



  38. 38

    In El Salvador we had red alert but now everything's fine. Guatemala was hit hardest because there was the eruption of Pacaya volcano and Agatha.



  39. 39

    that is seriously photoshopped..ive heard nothing in the news about it!!

  68. 68

    That's the most terrifying thing I've ever seen. Its like the devil opened up the doors of hell. cindydeesam1, I used to get so scared when they would say events like this would happen in the bible. I'm not now. I'm ready. I don't think the world is going to end soon. Although a lot of the predictions have come through, there's still more to come.



  69. 69

    wow how scary

    Hey im from Guatemala. it was terrifying it's all over the news. But friday literally black sand started falling from the sky. It was caused by the huge eruption of volcan Pacaya that destroyed thousands of homes. Then the ashes that appeared to be sand started falling ALL over the city. The road was not visible by how much sand there was, it was like one inch thick. It provoked a lot of problems with the drenages and all the roads, roof's, EVERYTHING was covered with sand, it was literally a beach in your backyard. Then it started raining causing the sand\ashes to compact and stick to the floor. To clean out a cubic meter of floor you had to spend about 5 minutes of it.

    Until now some roads are sitll covered with sand. There are piles of sand all over the roads. When sand gets cluttered in the drains the houses are flooded, Also closer to Volcan Pacaya hot rocks started falling on people houses, since the houses there are of a lower profile and maid of "lamina" the roof's collapsed and people had to evacuate even when sand and rocks where still falling. Then Lago Amatitlan and the towns next to it are flooded because of tropical storm "Agatha", the rocks of Volcan Pacaya got all the way to Amatitlan. Then in another lake, Atitlan, there were so much floods that over 3 towns of 1 million people had to evacuate because either they were close to rivers and rocks from mountains fell and covered the rivers, causing the rivers to go toward the towns and flood them.

    Because there are so many lights post falled and so many obstacles obstruying the road, very little land aid can be given. However the airport can NOT take any sand because where the airplanes land is covered by sand. The "aeroclub" already cleaned a space for a helicopter but the "kinda bad" government here won't let them because they want to serve and win the town's people hearts by saying "We are the ones that helped them" However the "aeroclub" (I spent all day helping and making basics bags which included, beans, salt, bread, flour, water, medicine, etc) has already sent over 1000 bags via helicopter 1 bag per family. If you have any donations please research and make them, over two million people are suffering of this (also there is no light and has been no light for over 3 days) in half the city. Please help Guatemala.



  76. 76

    Is that a real picture?

    Re: Livvsta
    well, it's true. it's just the media is busy reporting "haiti" and stuff. Central America is completely devasted. Guatemala was hit really bad with the volcano eruption and horrible rain. People were in their homes, and some lost cellphone signal. I'm from Honduras, and the floods are TERRIBLE, many lost their belongings, homes and lives. El salvador is being hit by this horrible disaster. It's been raining for over a week and it's not stopping. PLEASE DO CHECK YOUR SOURCES, BECAUSE YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY NOT READING THE RIGHT PLACES!

    I'm from Honduras, and I have two friends from Guatemala, who are stranded in Honduras, due to the Horrible weather, and not to mention devastation in Honduras, as well as in Guatemala. Their families have been in their homes since last thursday, our weekend was in an emergency state in both countries! Check before you say anything stupid!
