VIRAC, Catanduanes—Two persons, including one who was still unidentified, were confirmed dead in Bato town in Catanduanes province on Saturday as Tropical Storm “Karen” (international name: Sarika) brought rains over Bicol, the Catanduanes provincial disaster risk reduction management office (PDRRMO) said.

Jerry Beo, Catanduanes PDRRM officer, said an unidentified male person, around 45 to 50 years old, was found along the shoreline of Barangay (village) Pananaogan at 8 a.m. on Saturday.


Another fatality, Felicito Tesorero, 77, was also found dead at Barangay Buenavista, also in Bato, after going out to retrieve his carabao from his farm, also Saturday.

Beo also said a certain Rene Magtangob, 39, a resident of Barangay Sogod, Tigbao town, went missing after crossing Inagasan Creek Friday night or early Saturday. The creek was said to have been swollen by the continuous rains which had been pouring without letup since Friday.
