A village in the Philippine island of Leyte was buried under as deep as 30 feet of mud, with scores confirmed dead and up to 1,500 people missing.
The mudslide came after the region was battered with heavy rain, earthquake, and flash flood.
The farming village of Guinsaugon on Leyte island, 420 miles southeast of Manila, was virtually wiped out, with only a few jumbles of corrugated steel sheeting left to show that the community of some 2,500 people ever existed.
"It sounded like the mountain exploded, and the whole thing crumbled," survivor Dario Libatan told Manila radio DZMM. "I could not see any house standing anymore."
Southern Leyte province Gov. Rosette Lerias said: "There are no signs of life, no rooftops, no nothing."
