MANILA, Feb. 25 — Due to continuous rains over the weekend, at least 23 families in a village in Santa Cruz, Davao del Sur were affected by a landslide, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) reported on Monday.

The NDRRMC said that no casualty or damage was reported but some 23 families were brought to the village gymnasium. The landslide occurred around 4 a.m. last Saturday at Purok Cadena de Amor, Barangay Coronan in Santa Cruz town.
