No fewer than 26 fishermen were declared missing on Monday after tropical storm Mujigae hit the seas of north-western Philippines late last week.

The Office of Civil Defence said search teams had yet to locate 10 crewmen of the M/V Flores, which sank in waters off Pangasinan province on Thursday.

Authorities said two people on land were killed by the storm and one was still missing on the central main island of Luzon.

Mujigae reached Philippines on Thursday and headed out to sea on Saturday.
