A makeshift town in Tzanchaj , Guatemala on Wednesday, March 21, 2007. A deadly mudslide here was spawned by rains associated with Hurricane Stan in October 2005. Initially, up to 500 Tzujutil Maya villagers were believed to have been killed in Panabaj by the mudslide, which essentially  wiped away the town. Construction in the shelter town was halted after the area was deemed to be of high risk. Forensic anthropologists from the Fundación de Antropología Forense de Guatemala have been working to unearth the bodies of the missing and have recovered more than 100. They have also found the number of missing to be lower than originally thought, after many people were located in shelters or living in other towns after the disaster.
