Philippines: Almost 100 dead after storm produces deadly landslide that engulfed villages

Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos will fly over flood-submerged areas in order to assess the damage caused by Storm Nalgae, which swept across the country and killed almost 100 people.

More than half of the deaths were caused by rain-induced landslides, which engulfed large areas along with everything else.

An official said that villagers from Kusiong, southern Maguindanao province, mistakenly believed a tidal surge was coming. They ran to higher ground and were then buried alive by the boulder-laden flood.

Rescuers have found at least 18 bodies, including children, in the huge muddy mound that covers most of the area.


According to the country’s disaster agency, 63 people remain missing while 69 are injured.

The cost of infrastructure damage caused by heavy rains or strong winds was 757.84 millions pesos (PS11.3m).

He stated that he was shocked at the number of people who died.

Government agencies have distributed food and aid packs to families in need.

Nalgae made five landfalls in the Philippines and was expected to depart the country on Monday, heading towards southern China.

The Philippines experiences an average of 20 typhoons per year. Floods and landslides are often caused by the intensifying intensity of tropical storms.
