GUATEMALA CITY — Authorities had little hope of finding survivors in Guatemalan communities buried under massive mudslides, as the death toll in the wake of Tropical Storm Stan surged to nearly 770 in Central America and Mexico.

President Oscar Berger declared three days of mourning for the 652 people confirmed dead in Guatemala alone so far, while hundreds remained missing in the southwest of the country hit by floods and avalanches of mud and rocks.
