ILIGAN CITY—Another fatality due to the onslaught of Typhoon “Odette” was reported in Northern Mindanao, bringing to two the total casualties in the region on Saturday.

Estrada’s grandniece Grace Ann said that they came from the local market on the morning of Thursday when they were unable to cross the creek through a spillway by noon because it had swelled.

At around 8 p.m., both of them already hungry, Estrada decided that they should just push their luck and cross the creek.
