Meanwhile, the unidentified body found at the shoreline of Barangay Pananaogan in Bato Saturday morning turned out to be that of Rene Magtangob, 38, of Barangay Tigbao in Virac who was the same person reported missing earlier after trying to cross the flooded Inagasan Creek. He apparently drowned and was carried kilometers away across Cabugao Bay as rains brought by tropical storm “Karen” poured over Bicol Saturday night.  SFM
