Situation Report # 3
27 December 2017
CDRN regional center Panday Bulig Inc. reports that as 10 AM of 27 December there are still 14 active evacuation centers in Cagayan de Oro City serving 3,428 families. Of these evacuation centers, only 7 have community kitchens.
Because of the landslides and flashfloods, five bridges and roads in Region 10 (Lanao del Norte) and CARAGA are unpassable. In Cagayan de Oro City, the water supply has not been restored due to damaged infrastructure. Twenty towns in Mindanao still do not have power.
CDRN regional center Mindanao Interfaith Services Foundation Inc reported that there are 2,755 affected households (13,755 individuals) in 17 barangays in Davao City. In Compostela and Monkayo, they recorded 600 affected familis in 6 barangays and 550 familes in 6 barangays, respectively. Meanwhile in Bukidnon, 400 families in 4 barangays/4 sitios were affected. Relief is requested for some severely affected barangays (see details in separate section).
According to data from the NDRRMC, the provinces of Lanao del Norte and Zamboanga del Norte and the ARMM reported the most number of damaged residential houses. The damage in Zamboanga is mainly due to the massive flashfloods. Meanwhile, damage to agricultural crops has been pegged at 44 million (rice crops) in Zamboanga del Sur and 7.8 million in Agusan del Sur (rice and other crops).
A state of calamity has been declared in Zamboanga del Sur and Lanao del Norte, where most of the worst flooding occurred. CDRN regional center Kadait reported that rescue operations are still being undertaken because the floodwaters have not receded from many of the barangays in Zamboanga del Norte.
