On February 4, 1976, Guatemala was struck by a major 7.5 magnitude earthquake, which contributed to the high death toll of 23.000 and about 80.000 wounded. It happened during the night and most adobe type houses in mountain villages collapsed. The population migrated on foot from the destroyed villages to the cities and tried to resume their small business.
