Philippine Coast Guard find more dead in Cebu waters

While the nation and the world is absorbed by the Luyon floods, coast guard and divers work on the sunken ferry M/V St. Thomas Aquinas off the coast of Cebu.

This morning at 9:55 a.m. the Philippine Coast Guard twittered that the number of rescued passengers remained at 750 and that dead toll raised to 61.

The collision also caused an oil spill that affects Cordova town on Mactan Island. The oil flows out of the sunken ferry in a depth of 46 meters. The Cebu provincial government declared a state of calamity over the entire province, citing the oil spill’s effects on local fisherfolk.
