MANILA, Philippines (Xinhua) -- Hundreds of families were evacuated Sunday as a low pressure area brought more rains in southern Philippines resulting to flash floods, a senior government official said.
Undersecretary Benito Ramos, executive director of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), said a flash flood occurred in three villages in Gingoog City in Misamis Oriental province at around 2:00 a.m.
As a result, he said, 149 families or 699 people were evacuated to a church and a village hall.
At least four villages were also hit by flooding in Surigao del Norte province, where 166 families or 670 individuals were evacuated, said Ramos.
Ramos said alert levels were raised in four rain gauge stations in central and southern Philippines.
Landslide, floods hit Albay towns
LEGAZPI CITY, Philippines—Low-lying areas in this city and three towns in Albay were flooded while the national highway along Barangay (village) Sogod in Tiwi town was rendered impassable by a landslide on Sunday amid incessant rain in the Bicol region since Saturday.
Reports reaching the Albay provincial disaster risk and reduction management council (PDRRMC) said flooding was reported in the low-lying villages of Busay in Daraga, Masarawag in Guinobatan, Ilaod and Sugcad in Polangui, and Maoyod and Tula-Tula in this city, according to Governor Joey Salceda, PDRRMC chairman.
A still undetermined number of families in the flooded villages in Polangui have been evacuated to Sugcad Elementary School, said Mayor Cherrie Sampal.
Television reporter Jocelyn Pamor of ABC 5 suffered multiple abrasions when she attempted to cross a swollen river near the Casgawa ruins, located at the foot of Mount Mayon, while covering the Cagsawa Festival in Daraga town. Pamor and at least 10 members of the ABC 5 crew were now sheltered at the Cagsawa Ruins Museum compound, according to report reaching the PDRRMC.
The landslide that hit Sogod rendered impassable the section of the national highway that linked Albay to the Partido area in Camarines Sur, Salceda said.
He said he has placed the whole of Albay on an alert status since early Sunday following a bulletin from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Administration (Pagasa) that Bicol would be affected by the low pressure area (LPA) spotted in Malaybalay, Bukidnon.
Residents have also been advised against crossing rivers while military trucks have been placed on standby in case the weather condition worsened, Salceda added.
Jun Dalida, Pagasa director for Southern Luzon, said on Sunday that the widespread cloudiness and moderate to heavy rains due to the LPA would affect the Bicol region.
Dalida advised all the local disaster councils to be on alert.
Misamis residents brace for more floods
TUDELA, Philippines – Residents of this town braced themselves for more floods as intermittent rains continued for a second straight day on Saturday, with many of them moving into an evacuation camp set up in the town center.
“The people are cautious now not to be caught in a similar situation again in the dead of night,” Mayor Estela Obut said.
On Friday, flashfloods spawned by 10 hours of continuous heavy rains starting Thursday night swamped 11 of the town’s 33 barangay (villages), or municipal districts and villages. The floods had subsided in most areas by Saturday but three villages remained isolated by the flooding.
Friday’s flooding damaged the asphalt pavement of several portions of the national highway, and led to the collapse of concrete fences of a number of houses.
Obut said evacuees reported that the water in the Paca River remained high and that they were not taking chances by staying in their homes as the rains continued intermittently.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration forecast “widespread rains over Visayas and Mindanao” due to the “tail-end of the cold front affecting Eastern Visayas and northern Mindanao.”
It warned of possible flashfloods and landslides.
In the neighboring town of Clarin, 21 houses in six villages were wrecked, but no casualties were immediately reported, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.
In Sapang Dalaga town, a house was destroyed.
In Mahayag, Zamboanga del Sur, a bridge that connected the village of Tolan to Dumingag town also collapsed, while a house was swept away by flood waters, the NDRRMC reported.
Dumingag Mayor Nacianceno Pacalioga told the Inquirer by phone that travel into the town at this time was via a spillway far from the bridge. But the facility could accommodate only small vehicles like jeepneys, Pacalioga added.

‘It’s her! It’s her!’ Eight more bodies recovered
LA LIBERTAD, Negros Oriental—Jorlin Vergara broke down when he saw the brown shorts and orange-and-green plastic bracelet.
“It’s her! It’s her!” he shouted.
Search-and-rescue teams in Barangay (village) Solonggon had uncovered a leg, before digging out the remains of a young girl at around 10:45 a.m. Friday. The body turned out to be that of Vergara’s missing 16-year-old daughter, Joralie.
Joralie was among the eight remains, including a baby’s, that have been recovered in two landslide-hit towns of Negros Oriental since Thursday.
This brought the official death toll from the 6.9-magnitude quake and the landslides it triggered in the Central Visayas to 39, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).
The NDRRMC said 66 people are still missing.
“We are not giving up hope,” said NDRRMC executive director Benito Ramos in a phone interview from Guihulngan City.
Two seriously wounded survivors found in a mountainous area of Barangay Kagawasan, Guihulngan, yesterday, five days since the earthquake, have been airlifted to Dumaguete City, the provincial capital.
The NDRRMC has reported P250 million worth of infrastructure damage in Negros Oriental and P16 million in Cebu. Three bridges in Negros Oriental remain impassable.
Just minutes before the remains of his daughter was found, Vergara, 39, had all but lost hope she would be found alive.
“We just want to find her but I also do not want to see her remains because I don’t want to think about what she might have gone through,” he told the Inquirer as the search and retrieval teams continued digging, using backhoes, shovels, crowbars and picks.
Vergara’s wife, Lera, and Joralie’s twin sister, Joralin, managed to escape when their house collapsed as huge chunks of earth cascaded and covered around 60 houses of Bloke Dos in Barangay Solonggon.
Vergara was working on his farm just 100 meters from the family home when the earthquake and landslide struck.
“It’s so painful for us. Our house is gone along with all our things and we will not go back there because it has become a cemetery,” he said.
“It would have been less painful to start again if our family is complete,” said Vergara whose family has been staying at the barangay center which shelters about 200 evacuees.
Looking for Mama
Gerry Sanoy, 40, continues to search for his missing loved ones—his wife, Luna, 40, daughter Jeca, 20, and son RG, 15—who were all buried in the landslide. Only one daughter, Lourgie, survived.
Since Tuesday, Sanoy has been returning to his village, which has now been turned into a mountain of earth, rubble and uprooted trees. He brings food so he can stay there all day, praying for signs of his family.
Jemar Dinolan, 16, also comes every day and stands at the top of the rubble looking at the spot where his house once stood.
“I’m looking for my Mama,” he said.
Jemar’s mother, Maria Fe, failed to get out of the house as boulders and soil came rushing down the mountain.
Geoben, his father, who was out cutting bamboo narrowly escaped being hit by the boulders. Geoben shouted to villagers to get out of their houses and rushed to find his wife, but it was too late for the latter, Jemar said.
Jemar’s 80-year-old grandfather, Tandoy, is also missing.
Some were only able to confirm Friay that family members were missing.
“I tried calling them but there was no reply,” said Daisy Pocong-Lindayao, 24.
She cried when she saw rocks and soil where the house of her parents, George and Susan Pocong, used to be.
A sister-in-law and two of her nephews are also missing.
Lindayao said she was only able to go to Solonggon Friday as she had to evacuate her 3-year-old twin daughters to a school and there was nobody to take care of them.
Solonggon village chief Rene Gargoles said the landslide wiped out the entire Bloke Dos, a 2-hectare community of around 60 houses.
Forty-eight villagers remain missing and those who survived lost from eight to 10 relatives each.
Gargoles said it was the worst disaster to have happened to their barangay, one of the 23 hinterland barangays of La Libertad.
“We don’t know where to relocate the survivors. We have received food and water but we need more help,” Gargoles said.
Kanlaon closed to trekkers
The Kanlaon Volcano, which straddles Negros Occidental and Oriental provinces, has been temporarily closed to mountaineers after large cracks believed to have been caused by Monday’s quake were observed at its crater and land surfaces, according to Cecil Cañada, superintendent of the Mt. Kanlaon Natural Park (MKNP).
Kanlaon is an active volcano with a peak elevation of 2,435 meters and a base diameter of 30 kilometers.
Cañada said about three 50-meter-long cracks have been seen near the crater, while other cracks and a landslide have been noted within the MKNP. A landslide was also seen at Margaha Valley, the old crater of the volcano, he added.
Cañada also said the aftershocks from Monday’s earthquake and occasional heavy rainfall could pose some danger to mountain trekkers and tourists in the park.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has been informed of the damage to the volcano from the quake and was trying to arrange for an aerial survey of the area, he said.
However, it is difficult to get a chopper as they are being used for relief operations in Negros Oriental, Cañada said.
The volcano continues to be under observation amid the continuing aftershocks, he said.
Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala yesterday said efforts are underway to bring food to the stricken areas even as he assured the public that there was no shortage of rice in the affected region.
The earthquake, which struck Cebu and Negros provinces, caused landslides and damaged roads that left many barangays difficult to reach and virtually inaccessible to relief and rescue personnel.
Alcala said that as of Wednesday, the available rice in the damaged areas was good for 23 days, and the amount could go up if you add the stocks in the hands of farmers and commercial stores.
Alcala noted that some stores have chosen to remain closed following the quake because of concerns that they may be besieged or overwhelmed by buyers.
“There is no problem with rice. The problem we see is some stores are afraid to open, which was why some people find it difficult to buy it,” he told a press briefing.
He said he had instructed Department of Agriculture (DA) personnel to purchase livestock from piggeries and poultry farms and take these to the slaughterhouse. The meat is to be taken to the markets on consignment.
“We will help them while the situation has not yet normalized,” he said.
Vegetables will be delivered to affected areas as well, he said, adding that the DA would dispatch more patrol boats, if necessary, to deliver more poultry, meat and vegetables.
Alcala said he did not care how the food items are delivered as long as they reach their destination. He said he would not accept any excuse for failing to deliver them.
Noting the reluctance of worried storeowners to open for business, Alcala appealed to people to be more disciplined and emulate the orderly way in which the people of Japan went about their business following the devastating quake that hit their country last year.
The Russian government is extending humanitarian aid to survivors of the Central Visayas quake, according to Vice President Jejomar Binay.
The donations, which include 60 tons of relief goods composed of blankets, tents, sugar, and preserved fish and meat, will arrive in two batches on Feb. 11 and 14, he said.
Binay said Russian Ambassador Nikolay Kudashev had asked the Office of the Vice President to assist in facilitating the delivery of the relief goods to affected areas during a courtesy call to the Vice President’s office.—With reports from Dona Pazzibugan, Leila Salaverria and Tina Santos in Manila; and Carla Gomez, Inquirer Visayas

Floods displace Misamis, Zamboanga folk
OZAMIZ CITY—Massive flooding spawned by about 10 hours of heavy rains since Thursday evening hit several areas of Misamis Occidental, including this city on Friday but no casualty had been reported so far, officials said.
Residents had to flee when the water started to rise in their areas. High tide, measuring 1.8 meters, had complicated the situation.
Tudela town Mayor Estela Obut said 241 families were rescued from up to neck-deep waters that submerged 11 of the town’s 33 villages.
“No one was reported hurt as we were able to respond to rescue needs in time,” she said.
Obut said the Paca River overflowed and flooded the town’s villages. She said several areas of nearby Clarin town were also inundated. “Initial disaster survey showed that 16 houses had been damaged,” she said.
As of Friday noon, at least three villages remained isolated from the town center because of the deep water, she added.
Only those with bancas, she said, had access to the barangays of Yahong, Luksoon and Silongon.
In Ozamiz City, Mayor Nova Princess Echavez ordered the suspension of classes in all elementary and high schools due to the rising floodwaters.
Minor landslides in Barangay Bitibot of Sapang Dalaga town also blocked half of the national highway, constraining the flow of traffic, according to reports from other officials.
In Dapitan City in Zamboanga del Norte, the floods, which reached up to eight-feet deep in many areas, had receded early Friday, according to Alemario Dagpin, secretary to the mayor.
Councilor Apple Agolong said displaced residents from the city’s 12 flooded villages had started returning home.
Dagpin said some of those returning found their village in disarray and their houses damaged.
“So many houses were destroyed, some were washed out to sea. We are still conducting our assessment,” he said.
Adriano Fuego, director of the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council in Western Mindanao, reported that 13,052 individuals were directly affected by the Dapitan flash floods.
A bridge also collapsed due to the current, he said.
Maribel Enriquez of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) based in Zamboanga City said the floods that hit Misamis Occidental and Dapitan were triggered by heavy rains.
She said there was no storm forecast but the rains were caused by the cold front and northeast monsoon.
Enriquez said rains were also expected in other Mindanao areas.
“We are also monitoring a low pressure area (LPA) in southern Mindanao coupled with the tail of the cold front,” she said.
The LPA has been spotted east of Mindanao, and it is expected to bring rains to Visayas and Mindanao, according to Pagasa.
Pagasa said that as of 2 p.m. on Friday, the LPA was 730 kilometers east of Mindanao.
Eastern and Central Visayas and Northern and eastern Mindanao may experience widespread rains that may trigger flash floods and landslides.
The rest of Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains. Ryan Rosauro and Julie Alipala, Inquirer Mindanao; with a report from Leila B. Salaverria in Manila

"I had a cry in the middle of the street," she said. "I had a big sook and then decided that I've got to get on with it.
"(We) tried to get the cars out of the garage, tried to get the animals onto higher ground and then helped a few neighbours out."
Darrol Hancock, 56, raced to his home in Londonderry from work when he heard about the floods.
"It (water) was up to the fence and it's still rising."
"Last time we had a flood this bad it was 1990, but it didn't come as high as this."
Mr Hancock believes the area floods when Rickabys Creek can't cope with the rainfall.
