Bagyong Juaning survivors rescued in Gasan

Boats destroyed, farm crops lost to the winds and relentless rains, landslides, flashfloods and lives lost are just some of the unexpected effects of Typhoon Juaning in Marinduque. Marinduque remained under Signal No. 1 as Bagyong Juaning moved west northwest of the Philippines.

The names of those rescued in Libtangin are Rowell Paco, 35, Celester Caballes, 23, Norwel Lopez, 23, Rocky Lopez, 36, Eddie Boy Lazarte, 33, Perlito Grapani, 48. Rescued in Bacong-Bacong are Isagani Amaro and Rolando Dival. Rescued in Pangi are Danilo Cordero and Gil Lacson. All are under the care of local authorities.

In addition to one body earlier found in Mogpog, another dead body was retrieved yesterday afternoon by local fishermen in Brgy. Caganhao (Boac). The two are believed to be part of the above-mentioned group of survivors from Dalahican, Lucena City whose fishing boat capsized Tablas Strait at the height of Bagyong Juaning.

There are also reports that more were rescued in Buenavista town but no further details are available at the moment.
