Philipino Among Flood Deaths

A Philipino man adds to the official death toll since the heavy rain last Thursday.

Police reports that the adult male was found dead today at the Bonege Bridge by a search party.

He was last seen Monday trying to cross the flooded Bonege river.

The deceased was an employee of the Bulacan Enterprises logging company when the incident occurred.

The death of the Philipino man brings the official death toll to nine people.

It is expected that the death toll may rise further as authorities are still looking for eight people that have been missing since the rain began.
