A closed-circuit television camera captured the collapse of a portion of a mountain in Naga City, Cebu that led to dozens of deaths, early Thursday.
Gray skies hovered over the once picturesque community moments before the upper slopes broke off and slammed into the houses on the foot of the mountain.

As of September 21 noon, at least 22 people were confirmed dead, while dozens remain missing.
