GUATEMALA CITY (AP) - Tropical Storm Agatha, the first of the season, formed Saturday off the Pacific coast of Guatemala, where its heavy rains dislodged a boulder that killed four people and threatened to turn black volcanic ash into cement-like mud.
Agatha comes two days after the Pacaya volcano began erupting, blanketing Guatemala's capital in ash and destroying 800 homes. Officials expressed worry that Agatha's heavy rains could exacerbate the damage.
The tropical storm was centered about 105 miles (170 kilometers) west of Puerto de San Jose, Guatemala, and moving toward the northeast at 7 mph (11 kph), said the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. It had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph).
