MANILA - A mudslide triggered by heavy rain swept down several houses in Barangay Pinulot, Dinalupihan, Bataan late Thursday night.

Local authorities rescued some 25 residents. Some of them had to be brought to a hospital after sustaining minor injurues, Dinalupihan Mayor Gila Garcia said in a DZMM interview.

A school fence in a neighboring village also gave way.

"Malakas kasi ang agos ng tubig na may kasamang lupa," Garcia said.

This is the second time that a mudslide struck the area, she added.

"Titingnan po natin kung ano 'yung mga kailangang actions na gagawin para hindi na lumala lalo na pagdating ng tag-ulan," Garcia said.
