2 killed by falling seawall in Zamboanga

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines—Two children were killed while another one was injured when an old five-foot-tall seawall in Barangay Ayala  collapsed from battering by strong waves churned up a low pressure area that was threatening to bring heavy rainfall to many parts of Mindanao.

The children were playing near the seawall, made of boulders, pebbles and sand, on Tuesday evening when it collapsed on them, Chief Inspector Hado Edding of the Ayala police station said Wednesday.

Edding identified the fatalities as Reymart Pantasan, 8, and Giancarlo Aquino, 6. The injured victim, who was in critical condition in a hospital here, was identified as John Rey Patongo, 5.

“They were playing near the quarry area at the Olaso property separated by an old seawall. The strong wind and waves may have caused the seawall to crumble down on the site where the kids were playing,” he said.

Edding said the police suspected also that quarrying  had weakened the wall’s foundation. So when the strong wind and waves battered it, it readily gave way, he said.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Mindanao, residents of General Santos City, Davao del Sur and Sanrangani were warned of approaching bad weather as a result of the low pressure.

Officials ordered residents of coastal areas  as well as people living near riverbanks to prepare for possible evacuation as a low pressure area which developed off the city a few days ago east southeast of General Santos City was threatening to bring heavy rainfall.

The advisory was issued even as a weather forecaster said the weather disturbance, which was monitored 400 kilometers east southeast of General Santos early Wednesday, had no chances of developing into a storm.

Buddy Javier of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration  said the weather disturbance was expected to dissipate in the next 24 hours.

However, Javier said the low pressure area could still dump more rain than usual and could threaten many Mindanao areas with floods.

“Widespread rains over the eastern section of the Visayas and the whole of Mindanao may trigger flashfloods and landslides,” Pagasa said in an advisory.

Jerome Barranco, deputy director of the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council in Central Mindanao, said the warning against sailing, especially for fishermen and those using small water vessels, remained in place.

Pagasa admitted that the low pressure area could generate moderate to strong winds, and coastal waters could be rough as long as it was active.

Ephraim Beliran, General Santos City disaster action officer, said a rescue team was on standby status.

Most of Mindanao was cloudy on Wednesday with rains reported in some areas, including parts of Sarangani and Davao del Sur.

In Davao del Sur, town mayors of coastal areas said they had placed their respective disaster response offices on alert due to the low pressure area.

Mayor Joel Ray Lopez of Sta. Cruz town, which suffered from floods in recent months, said residents in coastal areas and those along river banks had been told to evacuate as soon as they observe signs of danger.

Mayor Benjamin Bautista of Malita town said rescue workers were also asked to be on alert for possible emergencies, including landslides in hinterland villages.

Thailand:


Flash floods hit the South – again

Floods in the South tend to come and go quickly, but unfortunately for the victims, they have been increasing in frequency and intensity.

Heavy rain and flash flooding yesterday continued to wreak havoc in the southern region, especially in Muang municipality of Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Other parts of the South were hit as well, prompting hospital evacuations, halting airline services and forcing train passengers to continue their journeys by bus. But despite some provinces struggling with rising floodwater, levels were receding in the deep South.

In Nakhon Si Thammarat, run-off from Luang and Nun mountains, triggered by steady rain over the past four days, caused unprecedented massive flooding, putting several main roads and residential communities under deep water.

The floodwater in some communities, such as Bo Sap and Ban Tok, ran as high as two metres, forcing locals to resort to using boats to get around.

Authorities were mobilised to assist flood victims and evacuate those who wanted to move to safety.

Bad weather forced the provincial airport authority to suspend all flights, stranding several hundred passengers.

Rail passengers travelling north were advised to board trains at Thung Song station because tracks between Nakhon Si Thammarat station to Thung Song station were submerged.

Those travelling south were asked to disembark at Thung Song station and take buses provided by the rail agency to their destinations.

The floods battered six districts, three of which – Nop Phi Tham, Tha Sala and Sichon – have been declared disaster areas. In Tha Sala district, flash flooding breached an earth dyke and hit Tha Sala Hospital. The entire ground floor was inundated, forcing the hospital to suspend all medical services for outpatients except emergency cases.

Twenty patients were moved to Maharaj Hospital, 45 to higher floors and 35 others sent home.

The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation said flash flooding and run-off has hit nine out of the 14 southern provinces with almost 60 districts inundated.

However, the floods subsided in several provinces, providing respite for residents and businesses.

South reels under floods

The flood situation in nine southern provinces remains critical, with roads closed and train services halted due to high-level inundation and many villages engulfed in mudslides.

Another 84 villages, all in Ranong, are at risk of mudslides, according to the latest warning released yesterday. Twenty-one of them are located in high-risk areas in Muang, Kapoe, La-un, Suk Samran and Kra Buri districts.

The entire Lang Suan district in Chumphon has been isolated after a flash flood surrounded it last night, submerging all roads connecting it with the outside world. Many thousands of residents have been complaining about shortages of food and drinking water. A large portion of neighbouring Phato district is facing a similar situation, after abrupt forest floods cut it off from other areas.

A large number of homes in low-lying areas around a market have been flooded, with residents moving up to the second floor. Local radio announcements reported many phone calls asking for help and urgent supplies of food.

Route 4 and Route 41 sections in Lang Suan district have been submerged, prompting police to divert traffic to shortcuts and impose reversible lanes, creating heavy traffic congestion, as a huge number of holidaymakers return to Bangkok as the four-day New Year holiday break ends today.

Citing a weather forecast, provincial governor Phinij Charoenphanich said more heavy rain was likely for another day or two while urging residents living near the base of hills to brace for landslides and trawlers not to go offshore because of high seas.

In Nakhon Si Thammarat, a long crack on a mountain in Ron Phibun has caused panic to local residents with fears of falling rocks while all schools have closed until next Monday due to heavy flooding. An Air Asia flight braved a thunderstorm to land at a local airport with a load of frightened passengers. Nok Air and Orient Thai airways have called on prospective passengers to monitor weather reports and flight schedules on a constant basis.

A situation update from Nop Phitam district has not been available as power poles were felled by strong currents and most areas in the district have poor mobile phone signals. The district has been regarded as "completely isolated" and has seen many incidents of mudslides, said district chief Preecha Khumwong.

Ten local and long-distance trains running from and to Bangkok have halted service, said railway chief official Salaidej Saengphayak. Passengers are being transported to destinations on chartered buses while they can refund tickets for suspended trains at full price, he added.

Shelters have been set up at schools for flood evacuees from many areas in Muang municipality, where an estimated several thousand homes are under floodwater. The district’s wholesale farm product market - the largest in the South - has also been submerged, resulting in damage to a large number of products, prompting vendors to sell at low prices.

Tha Sala hospital, which was heavily inundated in the extreme flooding of last April, has evacuated 50 patients to other hospitals while medical equipment and supplies are still sufficient but at the ready to be moved up in case floodwater levels rise, said hospital director Kitti Rattanasombat.

A nine-year-old girl drowned yesterday in Yala’s Muang district, where 51,189 people from 15,300 families had been affected and 1,645 others evacuated, and 4,640 rai of farmland and 40 fish farms submerged or damaged. There has not been official confirmation whether the girl’s death was the first in the current South floods.

Their Majesties the King and Queen have provided relief supplies and other assistance, through local authorities, to owners of seven homes in Narathiwat’s Rue Soh district which had been destroyed completely by forest flooding.
