Floods, landslides kill 11 in Philippines
by UPI

BAGUIO, Philippines -- A series of landslides and floods caused by heavy rains in the Phillippines have left 11 people dead and another citizen missing.

Civil defense officials said torrential rains caused a major landslide in the town of Maco that claimed the lives of 10 people and left another missing, while a young boy was killed in the city of Baguio by another landslide, The Manila Times said.

The Office of the Civil Defense said in addition to Monday's and Wednesday's fatal landslides, a third landslide occurred in the city of Makiti early Wednesday. No deaths had been connected to that event, the office added.

Rescuers in the city of Antipolo, meanwhile, freed five siblings Wednesday after a wall of their home collapsed, pinning them underneath it.

Travel restrictions were in effect throughout the region as heavy flooding continued to block roadways.

Education department officials also canceled all elementary and high school classes in the capital of Manila Wednesday as a precautionary measure.
