Dumaguete and Cebu badly hit by 6.9 earthquake, death toll continues to rise

Dumaguete and Cebu were the two provinces badly hit by an earthquake a couple of days ago. The Death toll in the meantime continues to rise as TV Patrol just reported today that reached to 41 already. For sure there were unaccounted deaths yet but as far as I'm concern, it is the kids who suffered the most out of this tragic incident.

Guihulngan and La Libertad were the two localities where a feared 40-60 more were buried under the rubles of a mountain that collapsed during the said earthquake. As per reports, there only 2 bodies recovered and the search and rescue operation was halted to give way to the living victims and attend to their immediate needs.
