Floods hit Oriental Mindoro, parts of Visayas

MANILA, Philippines – Intermittent rains triggered flooding in Oriental Mindoro and several areas in Visayas, forcing at least 395 individuals to flee their homes on Tuesday, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said Wednesday.

Southern Luzon and portions of the Visayas experienced rains over the past two days due to the presence of an active low pressure area (LPA) near Palawan, and another one east of southern Mindanao.

The LPA near Palawan left the Philippine area of responsibility on Tuesday, while the one in southern Mindanao dissipated.

The NDRRMC said 23 barangays (villages) in Naujan, Baco, Mansalay and Calapan City in Oriental Mindoro were submerged in floods.

Rice fields in Barangays Buhangin, Adria Luna and Andres Ilagan – all in Naujan - were inundated after creeks surrounding them overflowed. Farmers were supposed to harvest rice this month.

A total of 175 individuals fled their homes in Naujan; 110 in Calapan City; and 85 in Baco.

Oriental Mindoro Governor Alfonso Umali said the situation in his province has improved.

“So far manageable na pero meron pa ring binabantayan na mga lugar,” Umali told radio dzMM.
