THE BODY  of a Nueva Libia landslide victim,  Virgilio Martínez, 42 who went missing, Nov 22, has been found.

Martinez was in his residence when a landslide brought down three houses in his neighborhood.

Some 140 Civil Defense (Sinaproc) workers were involved in the six day search.

Meanwhile rains continue to create  problems in other locations.

At least five homes were flooded and the wall of another house collapsed due to the flooding of the Perales River in Los Santos.

The overflowing of the river isolated some communities along the river for several hours, said civil defense agency Sinaproc.

In the community of El Jobo, the wall of another house collapsed.

It is the second time in less than a week that storm damage was reported in the province. The early damage was in Macaracas.

Representative Ramon Rodriguez Solis said that the heavy rains have caused numerous problems in Los Santos.

Sinaproc is carrying out a damage assessment
