25 dead and over 100 missing in Philippine landslide

By Hannah Masterson

A landslide in a remote area of the Philippines has killed 25 people and left more than 100 missing.

The landslide happened around 3 a.m. in the south of the island, according to a statement from the Philippine National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.

The landslide in the mountainous region of Mindanao

Heavy rain had been falling since mid-December which left the soil waterlogged. This area has been known to be dangerous after a similar incident occured last April near the site.

Survivors said the landslide buried about 62 houses, all of which were inhabited at the time of the landslide.

Journalist Ben Tesiorna, who is based in Davao City in the Philippines, states the authorities decided to call off the search late Thursday because of the risk of further landslides. They will resume their efforts when the rain stops and the ground stabilizes.

It is the latest natural disaster to strike the island of Mindanao after a tropical storm killed more than 1,200 people there last month.
