Floods displace over 700 families


BUTUAN City - Heavy rains and floods spawned by a low pressure have so far adversely affected over 700 families in at least three regions. Disaster management officials said the low pressure area badly hit communities in northern Mindanao, Caraga and Region 8. In Jabonga town in Agusan del Norte alone, some 2,500 families living near Lake Mainit and rivers faced risks as floodwaters suddenly rose due to heavy rains. Jabonga is nestled along the coast line of Lake Mainit, the country's 4th largest and deepest lake. The town experienced its worst flood in decades in February last year; floowaters engulfed nearly all of the town's 15 barangays.

AGUSAN FLOOD. Children look at their flooded classrooms at the Colorado Elementary School in Jabonga, Agusan del Norte.

Over a hundred families from the town center alone were forced to evacuate. It has been raining everyday in the town and neighboring areas since Monday. Officials said the town is now under a state of calamity. At least six of Jabonga's 15 barangays were hit by floodwaters, displacing at least 500 people. Three evacuation centers have been set up in Jabonga. "Every year, people here expect floods," a town councilor told The Gold Star Daily. She said people from barangays Colorado and Magsaysay panicked when floodwaters surged in just three hours of rain last Wednesday afternoon.

People started evacuating at 3 pm when the floodwaters became waist-deep, said Jocelyn Anora from Barangay Poblacion. Anora and nine members of her family evacuated to the Jabonga gymnasium. Officials counted some 512 evacuees from about 120 families from the town center alone. Jabonga Mayor Glicerio Monton said the flooding was a result of the swelling of the Bangonay River and Kalinawan River. Monton said relief operations have started in the evacuation centers. The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said at least 731 families or 3,863 individuals from Regions 8, 10 and 13 were affected by the low pressure area.

The NDRRMC said 26 evacuation centers are currently serving 571 families or 2,905 persons in evacuation centers. Outside evacuation centers, the NDRRMC counted at least 128 families or 766 individuals. The NDRRMC also said two bridges in Salug Daku Bridge along Jct. Mahayag- Dumingag-Siayan-Sindangan Road and Macasoy Bridge along Dipolog-Oroquieta Road, both located in Zamboanga del Norte, are currently impassable due to incurred damages brought about by the low pressure area. The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) yesterday said the low pressure area hit Land over Mindanao as it lingered over the coastal waters east of Palawan on Thursday night.

Pagasa said the low pressure was estimated based on satellite and surface data at 130 kilometers east northeast of Puerto Princesa City (10.2 N, 120.0 E) at 2 am after hitting Land over Mindanao area. Due to this weather system, Pagasa forecast that the whole country would experience cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms becoming widespread rains over Palawan, Visayas, Central and Western Mindanao which may trigger flashfloods and Landslides. Senior weather forecaster Mario Palafox said the low pressure could develop into a tropical depression as it moves out to the sea. For its wind and sea alert, Pagasa said moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast and east would prevail over Luzon and Visayas and coming from the east and southeast over Mindanao. The coastal waters throughout the archipelago would be moderate to rough.

"Australia’s additional contribution of P292 million (A$6.5 million) will support essential humanitarian needs, early recovery and longer-term reconstruction efforts," the statement read, adding that the donation will also "help provide health, education and protection services and rebuild livelihoods through cash-for-work projects."

According to the embassy, the fund will be specifically used for:

• cash-for-work programs for the affected families;

• repairing damaged classrooms and replacing learning materials;

• helping the local governments of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan conduct detailed hazard mapping and establish early warning systems; and

• ensuring that the needs of the most vulnerable victims, such as children, women, the elderly and disabled, are addressed.

This donation from Australia brings its total Sendong-related assistance to P351 million, "making Australia the largest donor to the flash appeal launched by the Philippine Government and the United Nations." -- Mariae Francesca C. Ramos, Sarwell Q. Meniano, and Aubrey Barrameda

2,500 families displaced by floods in Agusan

BUTUAN CITY (MindaNews/17 February) – Some 2,500 families in the lakeside town of Jabonga, Agusan del Norte were displaced by floods brought by a low pressure area that hit parts of Mindanao last Wednesday.

A state of calamity was immediately declared in the town following an almost nonstop rainfall which started last February 13, Monday.

Six of the Jabonga’s 15 barangays were affected, sending 500 individuals to three evacuation sites.

“Every year the people here expect flooding to occur. Only this time several families from barangay Colorado and Magsaysay panicked when the waters rose faster than usual in just three hours last Wednesday afternoon,” said Sangguniang Bayan member Julie Ganot.

“We immediately transferred here in the evacuation center at around 3pm last Wednesday when the water level reached our waist,” said Jocelyn Anora, who evacuated together with nine members of her family to the municipal gymnasium as floodwaters from Lake Mainit covered her house in Barangay Poblacion.

Anora is among the 512 individuals or 120 families who had evacuated to Barangay Poblacion.

Mayor Glicerio M. Monton pointed out that Bangonay River and Kalinawan River mainly caused the floods in Colorado and Magsaysay, the two barangays hardest hit by the calamity.

“These rivers provide the exit point of the lake and sit in the flood plains between Jabonga and Santiago. Since the flood that hit us last year, we had prepared early on for this kind of situation. We will be distributing relief goods to those who are in the evacuation centers today,” said Monton.

The mayor added that prior to the flooding residents had already been warned and that they were encouraged to evacuate if they wanted to receive relief assistance from the local government.

Jabonga is a 4th class municipality nestled along the coastline of Lake Mainit, the country’s 4th largest and deepest lake.

On February 2 last year the town experienced its worst flood in decades which occurred in most of the town’s 15 barangays for two months. (Erwin Mascarinas/MindaNews)

Flood waters affect 57 villages

FLOODING has displaced 674 individuals in 57 barangays of Leyte due to heavy downpour that also triggered landslides in some areas of the province, the Office of the Civil Defense (OCD) said Saturday.

The flood water surge has affected households in low-lying villages of Abuyog, Burauen, La Paz, MacArthur, and Mayorga.

“All affected families were brought to evacuation centers Thursday to ensure zero casualty, but many of them were told to return home today as we expect floodwater to subside,” said Bhenlie Linde, OCD regional operations officer.

Thursday’s landslides were noted in Barangays Burubudan, Tadoc and Paguite in Abuyog; Barangays Pulahongon, Mahaplag, Leyte; and Barangay Kahupian, Sogod, Southern Leyte.

Some road portions were impassable until late Thursday afternoon.

The national highway in Barangay Barayong, Abuyog, and Barangay Liberty in MacArthur were flooded making it impassable for light vehicles Thursday night, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways regional information officer Antonietta Lim.

“The instruction is that equipment used in the field such as road grader, bulldozer, backhoe, payloader, and dump trucks should not leave landslide hit areas unless the road is passable,” Lim said.

The OCD report said that classes were suspended in some schools in the five towns as floodwater entered the classrooms.

Linde said that mandatory evacuation was enforced Thursday afternoon shortly after authorities declared flood alert Level 2.

“The flood has affected many areas but there has been no report of casualties and missing persons,” he added.

In the towns of Abuyog and MacArthur, hundreds of Army troops were dispatched to aid affected residents. Police officers were also seen roaming around to ask villagers to move to higher grounds.

This week’s widespread rain was brought about by low pressure area observed in many provinces in the country.

The OCD have been sending reminders to local government units to be alert as the weather bureau monitors moderate to weaker La Niña phenomenon will generally be experienced in the country like Eastern Visayas and some parts of Mindanao.

Eastern Visayas residents were told to brace for enhanced rainfall activity early this year with the region located in the eastern portion of the country where wet condition is “stronger than normal.”

Monthly rainfall predictions of the Department of Science and Technology showed that almost all provinces in the region will receive an average of 100 to 400 milliliter rainfall in February.

For March, above normal rainfall condition is likewise expected in almost all areas of the archipelago. “Towards the end of March, warmer air temperatures are likely to be experienced indicating the onset of the warmest months of the year.”
