House collapses after swollen river gushes through Philippines village during summer storm


This is the dramatic moment a house collapsed after a swollen river gushed through a village in the Philippines during a summer storm.

Shocked neighbour Almer Gumban was watching the river rapidly rising when the structure was suddenly damaged in Sultan Kudarat province on May 22.

Almer said they experienced bad weather for a few days which made the river overflow but the house did not give in until that afternoon.

He said: ‘We experienced bad weather for a few days, so the river overflowed. No one was hurt, but some of the roads were impassable and crops were damaged.’
