By Sofia Menchu SAN MIGUEL LOS LOTES, Guatemala (Reuters) – The search for survivors from deadly eruptions of Guatemala’s Fuego volcano was temporarily suspended on Thursday due to dangerous conditions for rescue workers, as the death toll from the disaster reached 100, authorities said. Residents should stay away from the still-dangerous area, said David de Leon, a spokesman for national disaster management agency CONRED. Authorities have admitted that a communication breakdown between CONRED and volcanologists in Guatemala delayed evacuations from the surrounding area.
