Footage from local television showed only coconut trees and a few tin roofs sticking out of the reddish soil after part of a mountainside collapsed on the farming village of Guinsaugon in Southern Leyte province. "Rescuers are scared because they can still hear the mountain rumbling," said Maria Lim, the mayor of Saint Bernard town, where a minor earthquake was felt on Friday morning. Rain, chest-deep mud, blocked roads, washed-out bridges and lack of heavy equipment were hindering rescue efforts. Relief flights and digging were suspended for the night. "The troops pulled out because big boulders are cascading down the mountain," said Colonel Raul Farnacio, in charge of the military's relief operations. He said 15 bodies had been recovered and 36 survivors found in Guinsaugon, a community of about 1,860 people. "Help is on the way," President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said on television, adding navy and coast guard ships were rushing to the remote coastal area. Rosette Lerias, governor of Southern Leyte, said the local school was full of children and also women who were celebrating the anniversary of a local women's group. "I don't see any homes, I don't see any buildings. It's just mud," she told CNN. "Oh God, this is truly tragic." One survivor, Didita Kamarenta, feared for her children. "I felt the earth shake and a strong gust of wind, then I felt mud at my feet," she said. "All the children, including my two children, are lost. They might have been buried." In Geneva, the International Federation of the Red Cross said it feared the death toll would be high since 90 percent of the area was affected by the landslide. "A relief plane is flying from the capital of Manila carrying 1,000 body bags, emergency trauma kits to help 1,000 people, rubber boots, ropes, clothing, flashlights and medicine," it said, adding it released about $150,000 in initial assistance. The U.S. embassy said a navy vessel, in the Philippines for annual military exercises, would help with the rescue efforts.
