According to police, part of the mountain in Sitio Sindulan in Barangay Tinaan eroded following days of heavy monsoon rains in the city.

Rescuers were still digging for residents trapped inside their houses for the second day since the disaster.

The landslide came just 5 days after the massive landslide in the mining town of Itogon, Benguet, which was triggered by Typhoon Ompong (Mangkhut). At least 54 deaths have been recorded so far in Itogon as of Thursday. – with reports from Rambo Talabong/Rappler.com
