This time 55 people are missing after a 63-ton ferry, the Piary, sank when heavy seas punched a hole in it's side 60 miles from it's destination of Brookes Point on Palawan Island. Of the 68 passengers and 7 crew on board, 20 survivors were picked up by a Panamanian-registered cargo ship.

This figure adds to the hundreds already dead in mudslides across the Phillipines.

Cheers,
