Death toll from Philippine Quake Increases to 144
Civil Defense Director Eduardo del Rosario said Wednesday that another 291 people are injured.
The central island of Bohol, a popular tourist area, was hit hardest by Tuesday morning’s quake, with widespread damage to houses and historic churches.
A day after the quake, Bohol Gov. Edgardo Chatto said that all towns in need had been reached, although landslides and damaged bridges were slowing down road travel. (AP)
