Ferry carrying 173 people capsizes in central Philippines. Cause of the incidents is blamed on high winds and high waves. The local Coast Guard reported that at least 36 people have died, with 118 survivors, and 19 people still missing.
Philippine National Red Cross Chairman Richard Gordon says he understood the boat overturned because of high winds.
He said Red Cross staff were on the pier in Ormoc assisting those who make it back to shore with blankets and meals.
