The death toll from the heavy rains and landslides brought by Typhoon Pepeng (Parma) rose to 375 after more bodies were recovered, majority of which came from the landslide-hit areas of the Cordillera Region, and the flooded province of Pangasinan.
The National Disaster Coordinating Council said, 185 were injured, and 48 remain missing.
The number of affected families by Pepeng has also increased to 675,681 or 3,136,965 persons in Regions I, II, III, IV-A, V, VI, NCR and CAR. Of this number, 17,506 families or 83,432 persons remain inside 179 evacuation centers.
Government officials estimated total damage at P8.1 billion, including P6.5 billion in agricultural losses.
The worst-hit were the severely flooded Pangasinan and the landslide-hit provinces of Benguet, La Union and Mt. Province, including Baguio City.
In the Cordillera Administrative Region alone, at least 287 people were confirmed dead. Baguio City on the other hand was totally cut off from the rest of Luzon after landslides blocked major roads, jacking up the prices of vegetables coming from northern Luzon.
Meantime, 80% of Pangasinan was inundated in floodwater, submerging rice fields, and forcing over 50,000 people to evacuate.
Pepeng hit the Philippines just eight days after Ondoy caused the country’s worst flooding in four decades, killing almost 300 people and affecting more than 829,498 families of 4 million persons. Pepeng, which stayed for 10 days in the country, also dropped more rain on Metro Manila that slowed the cleanup and made conditions worse.
