Three dozens feared buried in Philippines typhoon landslide

In the Philippines, nearly three dozen people are feared buried under a massive landslide unleashed today by Typhoon Yutu, which killed four children and a man as it ripped across the disaster-prone nation. Cutting a path just south of last month's Typhoon Mangkhut, which killed dozens, the new storm hit the country's most populous island, sparking multiple deadly landslides and shearing off roofs with its fierce winds.

Regional Disaster Management Chief Ruben Carandang told AFP that the people trapped in the Cordillera mountain area of Natonin were buried when a wall of mud slammed into a public works building, 

He said up to 31 people are believed inside the structure, but rescuers have not been able to reach the area because landslides have cut off roads.
 
Yutu, which made landfall early today with sustained winds of 150 kilometres per hour is gusting up to 210 KM. Authorities have already confirmed a father and three young children were killed in a landslide in Banaue, just south of the buried public works building. Another landslide killed a 5-year-old girl in a neighbouring province.
