Push experiences say that the earthquake killed at minimum 43 people as it ruined structures and activated landslides that buried dozens of residences in Negros Oriental. As a lot of as 30 homes were being buried and at least 40 persons trapped in the rubble of collapsed residences ended up lacking in the mountain village of Planas, 15 km from the coastal town of Guihulngan.

From our own community we figured out that all around Negros and even in Cebu residences ended up ruined or weakened. Roads were being thorn into items all in excess of Negros Oriental.
