3 killed in Mati City landslide
Richard Villacorte, administrator of the city of Mati, said that as of 5 p.m., three persons have been confirmed killed in the landslide that struck a portion of the highway in the village of Tagabacid.
Villacorte said search and rescue operations were ongoing following reports that three passing vehicles were buried in the landslide.
He said the landslide may have been caused by the loosening of soil following last week’s almost daily downpour.
