Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 2)— The series of devastating earthquakes in southern Philippines has left at least 22 people dead in its wake, disaster officials confirmed Sunday

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said the deaths from the two destructive tremors— both which hit Tulunan town in Cotabato— were recorded in the areas of Davao del Sur, South Cotabato, Cotabato, and Sultan Kudarat.

NDRRMC added that, in the last two weeks, a total of 432 people were hurt after the series of magnitude 6 quakes. Authorities are still looking for two missing people.

Several infrastructure—including schools, malls, and hospitals—were also damaged following the tremors.

Kidapawan City and nearby towns in Cotabato are currently facing water shortages after the recent powerful tremor destroyed main water pipelines in the areas. Officials said the pipeline repairs may take five to seven days. 

Some residents in parts of Mindanao took their appeal for relief to the streets—asking for food, medicine, and other basic necessities through public signs.
