Two sisters in Colombia who were separated as children by avalanche 30 years ago have been reunited. Jaqueline and Lorena Sanchez thought they had lost each other forever in 1985 when Tolima volcano erupted near their town of Armero. hot, molten lava from volcano melted nearby glaciers and caused four massive mudslides. These killed more than 20,000 of Armero's 29,000 inhabitants. Jaqueline, 33, and Lorena, 39, never found each other in chaos that followed disaster. They each assumed other was among deceased. Armero was second most deadly volcanic disaster of 20th century. Only the 1902 eruption of Mount Pelee in Caribbean was deadlier.

two sisters were adopted by different families and never knew each other's fate. They have both spent much of past few decades looking for each other. They were reunited when DNA tests they gave to organization that helped victims of avalanches matched. Lorena told reporters: "It was beautiful and sad because it has been 30 years since tragedy happened that I've come to find out what happened to my sister. I have to catch up with 30 years of her life and she has to do the same with me." Jaqueline said: "I'm excited, nervous, everything because suddenly, you don't know if you are going to be rejected….I wonder if she will love me. It's difficult. It's difficult to explain this moment."
