The confirmed death toll of a mudslide on the outskirts of the Guatemalan capital has climbed to 73 with nearly 350 others still missing as rescue workers recover more bodies from a collapsed hillside.

The Saturday development came as spokesman for Guatemala’s volunteer firefighters Julio Sanchez emphasized that the number of fatalities will most likely continue to climb as rescuers dig through massive amounts of earth that buried nearly 125 homes Thursday night in the Cambray neighborhood in Guatemala City’s suburb of Santa Catarina Pinula.
