The storm’s death toll countrywide was 88 by Thursday, police said, most from the landslides. A major recovery effort was underway in Itogon at a small mining site, where the bodies of 21 people, mostly miners, had been found by late on Wednesday. Rescuers looking for 53 people buried since Saturday say there is little chance of finding survivors. Rescuers in Cebu on Thursday had heard cries and shouting from under the rubble, media said. “I was sleeping when I heard a loud noise,” said Vhann Quisido, who had a lucky escape when a tide of earth and rocks stopped behind his house. “I was waiting for the land to come into our house. It was very traumatic,” he said by telephone.
