7.4 earthquake in Guatemala

A deadly earthquake rattled Guatemala on Wednesday, knocking out electricity, destroying dozens of buildings and killing at least 39 people, with many more missing or buried, President Otto Perez Molina said.

The quake, which officials called the most powerful temblor to hit the Central American country in 36 years, occurred along the northern part of Guatemala’s Pacific coast. The U.S. Geological Survey measured it as magnitude 7.4, while Guatemala’s National Seismological Institute ranked it as magnitude 7.2.
