Typhoon toll rises as 300,000 flee in Asia

THE death toll from Typhoon Saola has risen to 42 in the Philippines and Taiwan, and 300,000 people have been evacuated in China as Typhoon Damrey makes landfall.

The Philippines recorded 37 deaths in floods and accidents caused by Saola's torrential rains and strong winds, officials said on Friday. Four people were missing and feared dead.

Taiwan residents spent Friday cleaning up storm damage and returning to work, a day after Saola slammed into the island, packing winds of up to 155 kilometres an hour, dumping 1.8 metres of rain and killing five people. Two were reported missing.

Saola weakened into a tropical storm before making landfall on Friday morning in Fuding in China's south-eastern province of Fujian with winds of 90km/h at its centre, China's official Xinhua news agency reported.

Typhoon hits

It was the second tropical cyclone to make landfall in China in little more than nine hours after Damrey hit on Thursday night in the eastern province of Jiangsu and affected neighbouring Shandong province.

The Fujian provincial government said it had evacuated 306,000 people by Friday morning, but there were no immediate reports of casualties.

State radio said workers were rushing to reinforce a breached sea dike in Fujian's Pingtan area, which put some 5,000 people and 100 boats at risk.

Another 1,900 people were evacuated and tens of thousands of tourists had left Shandong's Rizhao area, which recorded 174 millimetres of rain brought by Damrey on Friday morning, reports said.

Liuting International Airport in Shandong's Qingdao city cancelled 29 flights late on Thursday but the airport resumed normal operations on Friday morning.

In the Philippines, 33 people were injured and 231,384 displaced, including more than 17,000 forced to stay in evacuation centres, the Office of Civil Defence said.

A gold mine was closed because of leaking waste.

Typhoon hits

The office said 22 of the dead drowned in floods and maritime accidents while 12 were hit by falling trees, two were buried in landslides and one was electrocuted.

Saola, locally called Gener, had battered the northern and central Philippines since Saturday. It blew out of the country on Friday.

The Taiwan government said it evacuated 8,081 people from mountainous areas hit by heavy rains and swollen rivers. About 3,280 people were staying in public shelters.

The typhoon made landfall twice on Thursday on Taiwan's less populated east coast. Local meteorologists said the twin landfalls took most of the punch out of the storm, which helped limit the damage to the more densely populated western side of the island.

Philippine typhoon death toll rises to 37

MANILA (AFP) - The death toll in the Philippines from Typhoon Saola has risen to 37 and is expected to go even higher as new rains worsened flooding, the government said on Friday.

Monsoon rains continued to batter the northern and central parts of the Philippines with some towns remaining flooded for the sixth day in a row, despite the typhoon having moved away from the archipelago.

Earlier reports said 23 had been killed but civil defence chief Benito Ramos said more deaths had been reported, including 11 youths who drowned in four different parts of the country on Thursday.

"They were probably enjoying the big waves, riding on them. They did not expect a storm surge," he told AFP.

The death toll is likely to go even higher, he added, citing four more swimmers who went missing in the north.

The Ramos-led National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said that although Saola had passed, it was still enhancing the monsoon rains and warned of continued possible flash floods and landslides.

In the coastal districts near Manila, knee-high floods persisted Friday, said Jeremy de Ocampo of the capital's flood control office.

"They are right beside Manila Bay and when high tide comes, they are flooded," he told AFP.

Although Saola did not hit the Philippines directly, it caused heavy rains and rough waters in a wide swath of the country, flooding parts of Manila and surrounding areas.

A Philippine gold mining firm said Friday waste had leaked from one of its mines due to heavy rains, forcing the government to shut down production.

Chief mining regulator Leo Jasareno said the government was assessing the potential hazards posed by the tailings spill at the Padcal mine, though Philex Mining, the country's top gold mining firm, denied the discharge was toxic.

"We have issued a suspension order on the mine," Jasareno told AFP by telephone as he drove to the mine, located near the northern mountain resort of Baguio. There were no reported casualties.

"Philex is exerting its maximum effort to address the accidental discharge, and has mobilised the requisite resources in this regard," the company said in a statement.

Philex vice president for corporate affairs Mike Toledo said bad weather was hampering company efforts to assess the extent of the damage and said it had no timetable for resuming operations.

"I think we'll still be able to reach our (production) targets," Toledo told AFP when asked if the shutdown would affect the company's profitability.

The listed company's shares plunged 6.71 percent to 20.15 pesos (48 US cents) in morning trading Friday as it disclosed the suspension of mine operations. Padcal is Philex's only producing gold mine.

‘Gener’ Toll Now 39; Aquino Visits Baseco

MANILA, Philippines — The death toll from typhoon “Gener” (international codename: “Saola”) rose to 39 while the cost of damage to agriculture and infrastructure reached P240 million as of Friday morning, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said.

The latest NDRRMC bulletin showed that Gener affected 11,097 or 519,665 people in 741 villages throughout the country.

President Benigno S. Aquino III visited an evacuation center in Baseco Compound, Tondo, Manila, which sheltered residents whose shanties on the bayside were rammed by a barge during the monsoon surge in Manila Bay at the height of Gener’s onslaught.

In urging the victims not to reconstruct their shanties by the bay, Aquino assured the residents that the government will continue to assist them and find a permanent relocation area that is safer.

A total of 117 towns and 25 cities in 32 provinces were lashed by Gener. Worst hit in terms of affected population was Region 3 or Central Luzon where 48,469 families or 218,355 people in 152 villages were adversely affected by the heavy rains, winds, and floods.

Pampanga Provincial Information Officer Joel Mapiles said 11 towns were still under one- to four-feet deep floods, aggravated by the overflowing of the Pampanga River, Abacan River, Guagua River and Candaba swamp due to heavy rains.

The PDRRMC reported an estimated 5,822 families or 31,287 individuals were affected by typhoon in Pampanga, Mapiles said.

Region 4A also took a big hit with 35,530 families or 176,446 people in 185 villages affected by the typhoon, the NDRRMC said.

In Cavite alone, 31,344 families or 153,260 people from 106 villages were flooded. Out of this affected population, 4,212 families or 17,563 people are now temporarily housed in 81 evacuation centers.

Meanwhile, 11 of the latest fatalities were identified as Angela Nicole Gregorio, 12; Patricia Gregorio, 11; and Elisa Mae Dolfino, all of Malinta, Valenzuela City;

Anthony Capsuyan, 25; Reynaldo Polca Frio, 38; and Arlene Tinaza Paz, 16, all from Ilocos Sur; Crisanto Rapusol, 22; and Winnie Capiles, 43, both from Bataan; CJ Marco Carlos, 6 months, drowned in Obando, Bulacan; Angel Ignacio, 6, from Pampanga; and Hazel Mae Arpullos, 6, from Occidental Mindoro.

All victims died due to drowning.

Another victim, whose body was fished out from Manila Bay, has yet to be identified.

In Obando, Bulacan where the entire municipality had been submerged in floodwater in the nine-day length of Gener’s onslaught, officials declared a state of calamity yesterday.

Floods not only submerged all of Obando’s 11 barangays but also 16 barangays in Hagonoy, and 12 in Calumpit.

One fatality was from Obando and another came from Marilao (Meycauayan as reported by the NDRRMC), said Bulacan Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, also the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) chief.

The NDRRMC later identified them as Jerome Orea, 19, and Justin Francisco, 19, whose bodies were fished out of Manila Bay.

Noting that most of the fatalities were drowning victims, NDRRMC Executive Director Benito Ramos appealed to the public to take all necessary precautions during the typhoon season.

He particularly urged parents to monitor their children and not to allow them to go swimming during heavy rains.

“I can only surmise na itong mga kabataan sa statistics na ito na nakuha natin karamihan sa kanila ay kabataan, nagswimming. Karamihan dito ay nalunod dahil malalakas, matataas yung alon kagaya sa area ng Ilocos Sur at dito rin sa may coastal towns ng Bataan, Pampanga, Bulacan, even sa Metro Manila,” said Ramos.

In Malacañang, Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte government would rather focus on providing assistance to affected residents rather than on pinpointing who is at fault.

But she said recent flooding in the metropolis “should serve as a lesson for all of us,” noting the amount of trash collected from the Manila Bay area that resulted in heavy flooding in Roxas Boulevard.

“We do appeal to the residents along these areas that have been identified as danger areas to heed the appeal of the DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development) para maiwasan yung pinsala sa kanila (to keep them away from harm),” Valte said.

Speaking at Baseco Compound with the President, DSWD Secretary Corazon Soliman said there are 145 houses ready for occupancy in Montalban, Rizal, where the first batch of residents can be relocated.

Relocation, however, will be voluntary.

There were an estimated 212 families affected by the barge ramming incident in Baseco Compound.

Aquino said once in permanent relocation sites, residents will be provided livelihood trainings, urging the affected residents to take the opportunity being offered to them by the government.

The President also urged other residents living in danger areas, such as those living under bridges, near creeks and rivers, among others, to relocate in safer areas.

There are 1.4 million informal settler families in the country, of which 560,000 are in the National Capital Region (NCR), including 130,000 families living in danger zones.

The President also handed out relief assistance to the affected residents, which included blankets, rice, and canned goods.

The NDRRMC said damage to agriculture was pegged at P79,730,000 while damage to infrastructure reached P170,419,615 for a total of P240,149,615.48.

The NDRRMC said 776 houses were also totally destroyed during the onslaught of the typhoon while, while 3,528 were damaged.

Several towns in Pangasinan were flooded yesterday after the San Roque Dam in San Manuel released water due to heavy rains.

The dam opened one gate by .5 meters at 10 p.m. Thursday for pre-emptive water release, said Engr. Tom Valdez, vice-president for operations of the San Roque Power Corporation.

He said continuous inflow from Ambuklao dam prompted the pre-emptive release in preparation for heavy rainfall even if San Roque water level was only at 278 meters above sea level (masl).

San Roque dam’s spilling level is at 280 masl while the critical level is 290 masl.San Roque dam’s spilling level is at 280 masl while the critical level is 290 masl.

A state of calamity due to the effects of Gener was also declared in the Navotas City in Metro Manila, Barangays Hacienda, Portic and Cayanga in Bugallon, Pangasinan; Obando, Bulacan; Mabitac, Laguna; Bacoor, Tanza, Ternate, Rosario, Kawit, Naic, Noveleta, and Cavite City in Cavite; San Luis and Lemery in Batangas; and San Jose, Occidental Mindoro.

But as far as away as Western Visayas, the aftermath of typhoon Gener and the southwest monsoon have displaced 14,708 people.

Speaking in Iloilo City, Office of Civil Defense (OCD-6) Director Rosario Cabrera disclosed that the number of residents affected in the provinces of Aklan, Antique, Iloilo, and Negros Occidental has risen despite the storm having left the country.

Cabrera, who also chairs the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC-6), noted that three people died, nine injured, and one missing in the aftermath of the twin weather disturbances that did not even directly hit Western Visayas.

Flood, storm surges and landslides have displaced 3,394 families across the region. It has totally damaged 190 houses and partially damaged 1,633 houses.

The province of Negros Occidental remains the most affected with 9,399 persons displaced, 97 totally damaged and 1,081 partially damaged houses.

It is followed by Iloilo City with 2,958 people displaced, 78 totally damaged and 367 partially damaged houses. Most of the damaged houses were along the coastal lines of Molo and Arevalo districts.

There were also numerous damages to houses and infrastructures in the provinces of Aklan, Antique and Iloilo. —with reports from Madel R. Sabater, Franco G. Regala, Freddie C. Velez, Liezle Basa Iñigo, and Tara Yap
