Rescue efforts are underway in northern Philippines, as authorities have raised the death toll of Typhoon Manghkut.

Philippines National Police said that as of today, a further 43 people remained missing and 64 were wounded, as a result of the world’s strongest storm of this year.

All but one of the missing are in the Cordillera Administrative Region, which saw a number of landslides.

Philippine police earlier said that at least 40 people, the majority of whom are gold miners, were feared to have been trapped, when part of a mountain slope, collapsed on miners’ barracks, in a remote village in Benguet province.

Seven bodies were dug out there on Sunday, with rescue work resuming in the morning.
