A dead cow lays in the disaster zone near the Volcan de Fuego, or "Volcano of Fire", in Escuintla, Guatemala, Tuesday, June 5, 2018.

The eruption of the 3,763-meter (12,346-foot) volcano, located 35 kilometers (21 miles) southeast of Guatemala City, was the strongest in four decades.

"We are ready when CONRED as the governing body of emergency management authorise us to make an appeal", the ministry said in a statement.

Fifty-nine-year-old truck driver Efrain Suarez is a resident of El Rodeo who had come to Los Lotes to check damage to the property of friends and family. The confirmed death toll has climbed to 99.

To date, 99 people are known to have died in Sunday's major eruption of the volcano, with almost 200 more still reported as missing.

The rescue brigades are working at top speed because they know that the order to stop the search will arrive at any moment so that the machinery can enter and sweep tons of ashes now petrified by the last-hour rainfalls. Rescuers poked metal rods into the ground, sending clouds of smoke pouring into the air in a sign of the super-hot temperatures still remaining below the surface, which firefighters said reached as high as 750 to 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit in some places.

The Mission E concept generates almost 600bhp via a lithium-ion battery and two electric motors, one on each axle. What else do we know about the Taycan? The electric sports vehicle is expected to go on sale at the end of 2019.

A state of disaster has been declared for the southern departments of Escuintla, Sacatepequez, and Chimaltenango, which suffered the most.

Associated Press journalists in Guatemala have seen workers carrying five stretchers of human remains out of San Miguel Los Lotes near the Volcano of Fire.

Their families will also get on-site housing.

These funds will help "Guatemala Red Cross support 3,000 of the most vulnerable survivors for three months", they added.

It is not clear how many bodies or body parts were removed from San Miguel Los Lotes on Wednesday. "We will have to resort to other anthropological methods and if it is possible to take DNA samples to identify them".

The national disaster agency says it's suspending recovery efforts because of the danger to its workers.
