Death toll from Philippines landslide jumps to 68

The death toll from a landslide in the southern Philippines has climbed to 68 as officials said on Monday the window of finding more survivors is closing. Rescuers were looking for 51 more people in the wake of the Feb. 6 landslide, which struck outside a gold mine in Maco town in Davao de Oro province and buried homes and vehicles that were supposed to ferry employees of the mining company. Disaster authorities plan to shift their focus from search and rescue to search and retrieval beginning on Tuesday, Maco town disaster officer Ariel Capoy said.https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacific/death-toll-philippines-landslide-jumps-68-2024-02-12/

          The government should be on the forefront to ensure that citizens are free from any danger! It should not be turning up when such a calamity occur. It should be available all the time.
