MANILA, Philippines – Over 300 fisherman from General Santos City remain missing following the onslaught of typhoon “Pablo” in Mindanao last week.

The wives of some missing fishermen went to the office of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) to inquire whether there are updates about their husbands.

They said their husbands have been declared missing along with hundreds of other fishermen from General Santos working for six various fishing companies in the city.

The Commander Nelbert Aniversario, however, said the search and rescue operations of the PCG and the Philippine Navy are still underway.

Just last Friday, 13 fishermen were rescued but most of them were from Davao Oriental.

According to the survivors, they spent days floating in the sea, surviving huge waves caused by the typhoon.

They said “Pablo” destroyed their boats, which to their count would reach 46.

The survivors are currently recovering in various hospitals in the province.

Meanwhile, the PCG will call for a Marine Board of Inquiry to let the fishing firms explain why hundreds of fishermen are still missing. – from a report by Jay Dayupay, ABS-CBN News

714 dead, 890 missing due to 'Pablo' - NDRRMC

MANILA, Philippines - The death toll from typhoon "Pablo" now stands at 714, with the figure expected to rise as 890 remain missing, data from the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) revealed on Tuesday.

The NDRRMC said 457 of the bodies have been identified, while 257 have yet to be claimed by their relatives.

Most of the deaths were reported in the devastated provinces of Davao Oriental (336) and Compostela Valley (327).

The fatalities in Compostela Valley, which was surprised by flash floods and landslides at the height of Pablo's onslaught last week, is expected to rise since 499 remain missing and feared to be buried under thick mud from the mountains.

Meanwhile, at least 70 people remain missing in Davao Oriental, where the typhoon made its first landfall.

The NDRRMC said at least 5,408,900 were affected by the typhoon, which had dissipated after being downgraded to a low pressure area last Sunday.

At least 116,404 remain inside evacuation centers.

Re: Typhoon Bopha fisherman casualties

[QUOTE=delmarrey;1103920]There are some out there that say we're already doomed by 2100 if we don't reverse NOW! And all life will cease by 2300 if it doesn't change before 2100.

Are any of them decendants of Mayans?

Re: Typhoon Bopha fisherman casualties

Not sure if the typhoon names are messed up or what but here is a follow on story. OK, it seems Bopha was called Pablo in the Phillipeans. 800 still missing, they are still searching, noe lawsuits against corporate boat owners.

Sad.
