The president is set to visit Biliran province, one of the worst hit areas by Urduja. 

Over the weekend, Urduja triggered a landslide that killed several people in Biliran and forced the evacuation of some 44,000 families, including those in areas devastated by typohoon Yolanda (Haiyan) 4 years ago.

The death toll has risen to 31.
