El Salvador's Quake's Toll: Over 270 Dead, 1,200 MissingThe race is on to find and rescue survivors in the wake of a major Central American earthquake that left more than 270 people dead, hundreds injured and as many as 1,200 missing.
"These are the main priorities right now: to rescue those people who have been buried basically since yesterday, also to have all the medical supplies and emergency equipment that we need to finish that job and also to take good care of people who have been hurt," Ambassador Rene Leon said Sunday at the El Salvadoran embassy in Washington.
Red Cross officials also appealed Sunday for equipment and monetary donations.
