Philippine mudslide





nopaniers
The disaster in southern Philippines looks absolutely terrible. As many as 2,000 could be dead.

Quote:
Hundreds of Filipinos are feared to have died after the side of a mountain collapsed and buried their village.

Nineteen people are known to have been killed and 83 have been found alive, but rescue officials say between 1,500 and 2,500 more might be under the mud.

A school and hundreds of homes were swamped as a torrent of mud and rocks swept over the site on the island of Leyte, following heavy rains.

Rescuers suspended efforts as boulders continued to cascade down the mountain.


It sounds like very hard work digging people out, with the mountain rumbling and boulders still falling through the village. I hope that as many people can be found alive as possible.
