Rescue workers gather in the disaster zone covered in volcanic ash near the Volcan de Fuego, or "Volcano of Fire, in the El Rodeo hamlet of Escuintla, Guatemala, Wednesday".

Rescue efforts in eruption zone suspended citing danger to workers; chances of finding anyone alive in still-steaming terrain nearly nil.

A church in New Hampshire is collecting donations to help the thousands of people left homeless from a destructive volcanic eruption in Guatemala.

The names and ages of the victims will remain confidential, officials said.

It updated on Thursday the previous day's count of 99 victims after ten more bodies were delivered to local morgues, according to a statement on Twitter.

Efforts were cut short Wednesday when a downpour forced teams to retreat for fear of mudslides.

Sunday's eruption sent fast-moving flows of superheated material and debris cascading down the mountain's flank and through small villages.

Many victims are believed to have burned to death or suffocated from the poisonous gases released in the eruption on Sunday.

"The bodies are already charred", he said. Some 197 are still 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.

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

Guatemalan officials warned of falling ash from the Fuego volcano late on Thursday and urged caution with flights as the Central American country recovers from devastating eruptions that have killed at least 109 people.

"In a matter of three or four minutes the village disappeared", Castillo said.

Their families will also get on-site housing. Right? But we didn't do it to them, and these kids need help. "For us, there is no tomorrow".

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