At least 52 people are dead and another 22 are still missing after a 7.4-magnitude earthquake struck off the Pacific coast of Guatemala on Wednesday. The most severe damage was in the city of San Marcos in the northwest, where 30 buildings collapsed and streets were fractured. "We are continuing to send assistance and resources to people throughout the country who are without electricity, water, had their homes destroyed or are still at risk," President Otto Perez Molina told reporters.
