The death toll from Tropical Storm Agatha continues to grow, with more than 175 people reported killed in Guatemala, Honduras and in El Salvador.

Destruction from the storm has been widespread throughout the nation with mudslides destroying homes and buildings and burying some victims.

CNN reports the downpour created a sinkhole the size of a street intersection in the northern part of Guatemala City.
