SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Another landslide has happened in the Philippines. At least 15 people are dead and dozens more are missing after the landslide hit a central Philippine village Thursday.  

It's the second landslide to wreak havoc in the Philippines in just a week. On Saturday, a landslide in a northern province killed at least 88 people and left dozens missing and feared dead.

One local official told CNN heavy rain caused Thursday's landslide. Monsoon rains in the area have intensified since Typhoon Mangkhut made landfall in the Philippines last week.

The typhoon didn't directly hit the province where this most recent landslide happened, though. And some residents reportedly blame the landslide on nearby quarries they say may have damaged the mountainside.
