2 killed in New Year's Day landslide in Dinagat Islands

Two people were killed while two others were injured after landslides caused by heavy rains hit a village in Cagdianao town in Dinagat Islands last New Year's Day.

Citing belated reports, the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) on Tuesday said the landslides also affected 100 families or 925 people. At least 20 families or 100 people were forced to stay at the village gym.

Cagdianao is a fourth-class town with a population of 12,886 people in 2,554 households.

In its report Tuesday, the NDCC identified the fatalities as May Dence Sibunga, 8; and Rodelio Sibunga, 7. It did not name the injured people.

At least eight houses were destroyed, the NDCC said. Damage to property - including wooden bridge and culverts and mangroves - was estimated at P1.3 million.

"As of reporting time, power lines are still cut off in Cagdianao," the NDCC said.

The NDCC said the Cagdianao Mining Corp. allowed its heavy equipment to be used to clear boulders and debris in affected areas. - KBK, GMANews.TV
