Landslide kills 2 in Antipolo (2:45 p.m.)
MANILA - Heavy rains have triggered a landslide that killed a 4-year-old girl and her
grandmother, a disaster-response official said.
Disaster-response administrator Joey Marco says two hours of rain loosened the ground and sent mud, rocks and debris crashing into a hillside house while the family was asleep in mountainous Antipolo city east of Manila.
He says the girl's pregnant mother survived Friday's pre-dawn landslide.
Tropical rains spread right across the Philippines, we here in Negros Oreintal have had heavy rain most of the day. Unfortunatly this landslide incident will not be a one off. Then there is the flash floods from the mountains.
