Leyte is one of the bigger islands of the country.. Tacloban, situated in the northeast, is the provincial capital of the island and far out the biggest city of Leyte. Ormoc City in the western part of the island, is smaller and a more typical regional town with a mixture of features of modern and traditional services.
December 2003, '....late at night a thundering sound came down the mountains and a few minutes later a thick layer of mud covered the houses...'
At least 100 people were killed in the southern part of the island Leyte in the central part of the Philippines. Even more people were missing and feared dead. Especially in the region around San Francisco town, Maasin and Liloan town, many people were confirmed dead the day after the disaster and hundreds of houses were reported buried in the landslides, electricity wasknocked out in several towns, roads were blocked and some bridges were washed out.
Survivors told that ...'...late at night they heard a thundering sound coming down the mountains, a few minutes later a mud covered their houses....' It happened when most residents were sleeping in their houses.
This new human disaster on Leyte was due to landslides and floods. It had been raining for several days. The ground had become too saturated. Landslides all over the province were the dramatic result. In the same week also in other parts of the Philippines landslides had dramatic results. At least 5250 people were evacuated and more than 220 houses were destroyed in the northeastern part of Mindanao, a region close to Southern Leyte.
