Ad Feedback

The death toll from the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that hit the Philippines has risen to 144.

So far, only three people have been pulled alive from the rubble and officials say another 291 people are injured.

The central island of Bohol was hit the hardest, with historic churches dating from the Spanish colonial period suffering major damage. Many roads and bridges were also badly damaged, making rescue operations difficult.

CBN Disaster Relief is preparing to travel to the region to provide relief for the victims.
