Over 11,000 families affected by Brooke’s Point flooding 


MORE THAN 11,000 households in Brooke’s Point have been affected by last week’s flooding due to rains from a low pressure area (LPA), the local government reported on Sunday.   

The southern Palawan town’s information office said all 18 villages or barangays have been hit, with 11,247 families needing assistance.  

This covers about 61% of the municipality’s population of 18,478 households composed of almost 74,000 individuals.   

The local government said a full assessment of affected families is still ongoing while the delivery of relief goods is challenged by damaged infrastructure.   

An initial report from the local engineering office show 48 infrastructure assets were damaged with cost estimated at P28.56 million.   

The low pressure area (LPA) was already out of the Philippine area as of Saturday evening, but was expected to continue bringing rains to the southern part of Palawan on Sunday, according to state weather agency PAGASA.  

Moderate to heavy rains were also expected in the Visayas and Mindanao, the central and southern parts of the Philippines.  

“The movement of the LPA continues to be erratic, and there is still a possibility that it will reenter the Philippine area in the coming days,” PAGASA weather forecaster Grace Castañeda said during Sunday’s weather bulletin.   

The northeast monsoon, meanwhile, would bring rains in the northern mainland Luzon. — MSJ
