At least 2 dead in Ilocos Norte due to Ineng

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – At least two people were killed after heavy rains caused landslides and massive flooding in Ilocos Norte.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said in a report on Saturday, August 24, that Ricky Manglanlan was killed when he was swept by a "strong current of floodwaters" after he rescued a family from a low-lying area.

The other was 17-year-old Pauleen Joy Corpuz who was killed in a landslide in Pasuquin town.

A provincial welfare officer told the provincial council during an emergency session on Saturday that Corpuz was sleeping at a relative's house with her two cousins when heavy rains brought by Severe Tropical Storm Ineng (Bailu) caused a landslide that struck the house located in Barangay Surong in Pasuquin early Saturday, August 24.

A report of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Resiliency Council said the landslide happened at 3:20 am on Saturday.

The girl's cousins were found alive when a team from the Philippine Air Force went to the site to rescue the victims on Saturday morning, but the girl was already dead.

The two other minors were said to be recuperating at the provincial hospital. 

The Ilocos Norte provincial council declared a state of calamity in the province due to Ineng on Saturday afternoon. Massive flooding in the province had affected over 18,000 people as of early Saturday night. – Rappler.com
