Tropical Depression Eleven-E was a short-lived but devastating tropical cyclone that killed at least 54 people in Guatemala.

In Guatemala, the depression produced torrential rainfall which triggered a series of deadly landslides along the Inter-American Highway. At least 50 people are known to have been killed along the highway; four others died in a separate event in Quetzaltenango. In Mexico, severe flooding was reported.
