Translated from Prensa Libre:
During Thursday night and early Friday, the anguished father dug and dug."They are alive, are alive," he was said to nourish the hope of finding them.
The family dog remained on top of the spot where the house used to be.
The rescue workers operating heavy equipment must move carefully while there is still hope that some people may still be alive so that they don’t collapse buildings. But after two days hope is fading. When Sunday evening is reached, the operation will likely switch to a recovery one.
Rescue workers are working in shifts but will have to suspend operations if rain continues to fall. The rest of the hillside is unstable and may slide as well. Some buildings are already under 20 metres of mud.
