According to the newspaper, the search and rescue efforts are complicated by the fact that floods and landslides are still ongoing, threatening employees of the services involved in the operation.

Local authorities do not exclude that the disaster could affect more than 200 people, while only 68 were moved to an evacuation center.

The Philippines is often subject to landslides due to heavy rainfalls and typhoons. Last month, the Noru (Karding) typhoon caused landslides and destroyed over 410,000 acres of harvest across the country.
