    A 7.4-magnitude earthquake shook a mountainous region of Guatemala near the Mexico border Wednesday morning. At least 48 have been reported dead, with a hundred missing and hundreds more injured. The powerful quake impacted all but one region of the country and was felt as far as 600 miles away in Mexico City. It is the strongest earthquake to have hit Guatemala since 1976. President Otto Pérez Molina flew to see the damage in the most affected region. “One thing is to hear about what happened and another thing entirely is to see it,” he told the Associated Press. “As a Guatemalan I feel sad … to see mothers crying for their lost children.”
