Floods cause class suspension in 2 provinces

CITY OF MALOLOS—Officials in 12 towns and two cities in Bulacan suspended classes in all levels on Monday due to floods following heavy rains in the last three days.

Reports from the provincial disaster risk reduction and management council (PDRRMC) in Bulacan said while rains were intermittent on Monday, classes in elementary and high schools and colleges in Balagtas, Baliwag, Bulakan, Bustos, Guiguinto, Hagonoy, Paombong, Marilao, Obando, Pulilan, San Miguel and San Ildefonso towns and in the cities of Malolos and Meycauayan were suspended due to floods rising to about 3 feet.

Evacuation

In Pulilan town, 21 families, composed of more than 70 people, in Barangay Tibag were evacuated to their village chapel on Sunday after their houses were submerged in floodwater when water in an irrigation canal there overflowed.

Officials of the National Irrigation Authority (NIA) ordered the release of water from Bustos Dam on Saturday when the reservoir level reached 17.43 meters above sea level (masl). The dam’s spilling level is 17.70 masl.

NIA continued releasing water on Monday even as the water level at the Bustos reservoir dropped to 17.32 masl.

Inundated river

Felicisima Mungcal, chief of the Bulacan PDRRMC, said the Bayabas River in Doña Remedios Trinidad (DRT) town, which feeds the Bustos reservoir, overflowed due to strong rains.

Mungcal said the provincial government needs to build a new dam near the Bayabas River to help contain the water flowing into the Bustos reservoir downstream and prevent severe flooding.

Water level at Ipo Dam on Monday was 100.36 masl, which was below its spilling level of 101 masl, while the Angat Dam’s level of 190.61 masl was still below its 212 masl spilling level.

Pampanga

In Pampanga, PDRRMC reports said at least 14 villages in Guagua, Apalit, Macabebe and Masantol towns were flooded on Monday.

Josefina Timoteo, chief of the Office of Civil Defense in Central Luzon, said the mayors of Candaba, Masantol, Sto. Tomas and Sta. Ana towns and Angeles City also suspended classes in public and private elementary schools due to heavy rains and floods.

Benjamin Santos, head of the disaster risk reduction and management council of San Simon town, said the body of Noel Tuazon, 15, who drowned on Saturday, was recovered in the Pampanga River in Masantol town on Monday. Reports from Carmela Reyes-Estrope and Tonette Orejas, Inquirer Central Luzon

2 persons drown in CamSur

MANILA, Philippines - Two persons drowned after they were carried away by floodwaters unleashed by the southwest monsoon in Camarines Sur last Sunday, disaster management officials said.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said the victims were swept by floodwaters while crossing the Bugsukan River at about 8 a.m. last Sunday.

The fatalities were identified as Ludiche Remudes, 35, and Jessa Mae Remudes, eight. Their bodies were recovered at 11 a.m.

The weather disturbance also displaced 418 persons or 84 families in Central Luzon and MIMAROPA regions.

Of the 418 displaced, 350 were from Occidental Mindoro while 68 others were from Bulacan. The evacuees were moved to chapels, barangay halls and residential houses.

Damage to property has reached P1.88 million, of which P1.3 million accounted for houses, flood control systems and irrigation systems destroyed in Occidental Mindoro.

The amount of damaged crops and vegetables in the same province totaled P4.5 million. The remaining P132,000 represented damaged fish cages.

Continuous rain also caused floods in Meycauayan, Malolos, Obando, Marilao, Calumpit, Pulilan and Guiginto all in Bulacan, Bombon, Camarines Sur, San Juan and Valenzuela in Metro Manila and Paluan, Occidental Mindoro.

The southwest monsoon also prompted some local governments to suspend classes yesterday.

In Meycauayan, clases were suspended in Meycauayan East Elementary School, Bangkal Elementary School, Saluysoy Elementary School and Calvario Elementary School.

Classes in elementary and high school were also suspended in Malabon, Valenzuela, Bulacan and Bataan.

The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (PDRRMO) said classes were suspended in the cities of Meycauayan, Malolos, and the coastal towns of Obando and Hagonoy.

The Bulacan State University (BulSU), the most populated university in Central Luzon, also suspended classes.

Liz Mungcal, PDRRMO head, said classes in elementary schools located in Barangays Bancal, Calvario, Saluysoy, Longos, Bayugo, Hulo, Gasak, Zamora, Poblacion, Liputan and Ubihan in Meycauayan City were suspended as early as 4 a.m. yesterday.

The NDRRMC Operations Center remains on red alert and is continuously monitoring the situation in affected areas.

Local disaster management officials are now providing assistance to affected residents.

Meanwhile, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said more rain is expected over most parts of Luzon and the Visayas later this week due to southwest monsoon and a low pressure area spotted off Mindanao.

PAGASA administrator Nathaniel Servando said the low pressure area is expected to intensify into a tropical cyclone by Thursday or Friday but it is unlikely to hit land. - With Helen Flores, Dino Balabo, Charlie Lagasca, Ric Sapnu

Floods inundate 83 Pampanga villages

At least 83 barangays in Pampanga were submerged in floods due to heavy rains on Monday.

The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said Mabalacat City and the towns of Guagua, Sta. Ana, Masantol, Macabebe, Sasmuan and Minalin were flooded due to rains brought by the southwest monsoon that was enhanced by tropical storm “Ferdie.”

Local officials said the remains of Noel Tuazon, 15, was found floating at a portion of Pampanga River in Masantol town on Sunday.

Tuazon’s friends said the victim suddenly dove into the river while on board a boat last Saturday.

Tuazon was then swept away by strong water current.

In Guagua, authorities said the Sapang Maragul dike may collapse due to the overflowing of water.

Water lilies also clogged the flow of water along a river in Barangay Sto. Rosario, Sta. Ana town, resulting in flooding and destruction of roads.

The stuck water lilies were removed Monday night. – reports from Jayvie Dizon, ABS-CBN News Pampanga

23 villages in Bulacan flooded

HEAVY rains spawned by Tropical Depression Ferdie over the weekend submerged 23 villages in Bulacan, the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) reported on Monday.

The villages are from the cities of Meycauayan and Malolos and in the towns of Obando, Calumpit and Pulilan, all in Bulacan province.

In a report to PDRRMC chairman Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado, PDRRMO executive officer Liz Mungcal said the seven villages in Meycauayan City are under two to three feet of floodwater due to high tide and heavy rains that pelted many parts of the province since Saturday.

Mungcal said nine villages in Obando are under one to two feet of floodwater, while four villages in Malolos City are submerged under one feet of water.

Two villages in Calumpit and one in Pulilan are also flooded, she said.

“Ferdie” left the Philippine territory Sunday but it brought floods in large areas of Luzon, leaving at least two people dead and six missing, and halting traffic in parts of Manila for hours.

Mungcal, meanwhile, said Bustos Dam continues to release water since Saturday morning.

As of 3 a.m. Monday, Bustos Dam released 90 cubic meters per second of water.

She said that the release is a regular operation at the dam and poised no immediate threat to residents in the downstream of Angat River.

The governor has advised local government units “to monitor their area of responsibility, take appropriate action and report to operation center any untoward incident.”

As of 8 a.m. Monday, the water elevation at Angat Dam is at 190.61 meters, still way below its spilling level of 212 meters. The water elevation at Ipo Dam was 100.36 meters (spilling level is 101 meters).

On Monday morning, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said a new low pressure area (LPA) was spotted east of Mindanao.

Pagasa said the LPA has chance to turn into a tropical depression. Once it does and will enter the Philippine territory, it will be named “Gener,” the seventh weather disturbance to enter the country this year. (PNA/Sunnex)

Nine more bodies were recovered on Tuesday, taking the death toll from Sunday evening’s floods in  Rikkos, Gangere and Angwan Rogo areas of Jos North  to 47,  as  the number of displaced persons hit 3,000.

The development came as  Abdlahamadu Maikusa, who escaped death by a whisker, lost 10 members of his extended family to  the flood.

Acting Zonal Coordinator for North Central of the National Emergency Management Agency, Mr. Mohammed Abdulsalam, told our correspondent in an interview in Jos  that the nine bodies were pulled out of the rubble of caved in buildings on Monday evening.

Abdulsalam said more casualities  would have been recorded if some residents had not relocated to the homes of friends  in other parts  of the local government. He also said  over 200 houses were destroyed.

He said, “So far we have 47 persons confirmed dead and about 36 still missing. We have over 3,000 people in displaced camps and the immediate concern is to give them some comfort by providing relief materials.”

The NEMA chief  added that searches were still on  to find those reported missing  by their families.

Meanwhile,  there are fears of a possible cholera outbreak within the area affected by  floods.

A medical official of the Federation of Muslim Women Association in Nigeria in  the  state,  Tawa  Abdulrahama,  told our correspondent in Jos  that no fewer than 65 persons in  various camps were being treated for  dysentery  and diarrhoea.

“There are already high cases of cholera among victims of the flood,” she said.

 Head of Rescue, Jama’atu Nasiril Islam,  Alhaji Sabo Shuibu, said the group had buried 30 persons who died during the flood.

Commissioner for Water Resources and Rural Development, Mallam Idi Waziri,  who led a delegation to assess the level of damage done by the disaster, said  the government would support the victims.

On his part, spokesman for  the Council of Ulama Elders,  Faruk  Musa,  said a majority of those displaced were in dire need of medication, accommodation and food.

He also said  327 houses were washed away, with several others badly damaged.

The   Red Cross Society said  four bodies were recovered from the debris of collapsed structures.

Head of Red Cross in Plateau,  Mr. Manasseh Panpeh, told the News Agency of Nigeria, “Many of the deceased were discovered in the rubble and banks of  Rikkos River in the course of our search for missing persons.’’

Maikusa, who survived the disaster,  told our correspondent  that  eight  children, including a three-month-old baby and her mother, were among 10 members of his family killed in the flood.

 He  said, “I give glory to Allah for saving my life.”

Maikusa said  they were sleeping in their homes  when the flood swept them away, adding that he had yet to come to terms how he escaped.

A witness reported seeing the "hysterical" young man and father "frantically" trying to lift rocks to reach her after the first of two massive landslides.

Coastguards, police, ambulance crew and rescue helicopters are now conducting a major operation on the beach at Burton Bradstock, Dorset, to reach the victim, along with specialist rescue crew.

The 23-year-old woman holidaymaker was trapped near to the Freshwater Beach Holiday Park after around 400 tons of rocks fell from the 150ft cliff over two landslides in quick succession.

It is not yet clear whether she could have survived.

One man also suffered minor injuries and was treated on the beach by paramedics.
