Vivid Photo of Damage from Tropical Storm

A03+Local+Path+of+DestrHere is the most vivid photo I've seen of the damage around Lake Atitlan in the aftermath of tropical storm Agatha back at the end of May. We're kind of close to that particular disaster because we were visiting at the time (Read our stories).

I'm unsure, but I speculate this is the village of San Antonio Palopa, where 15 were killed by mud slides. San Antonia Palopa is one of a string of little villages ringing Lake Atitlan.

The photo comes from an article in the Red Deer Advocate newspaper, in Alberta, and the only attribution is "by contributed."
