Comunicado del Presidente de la república

 

Unofficial translation

These are very hard times for many Guatemalan brothers, the unpredictable force of nature has made itself felt once again and it is still too early to know for sure the totality of the damage, it is a moment of unity, prayer and solidarity.

I ask everyone to collaborate with the authorities, be attentive to official information and take the necessary measures, the national territory is on orange alert and the departments of Chimaltenango, Escuintla and Sacatepéquez are on red alert.

On behalf of the people of Guatemala, I thank the brother countries for their solidarity and support.

May God protect and bless Guatemala.
