The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) reported on Monday that the severe flooding in the Eastern Visayas, Region 10, and Caraga areas was caused by the heavy rainfall brought on by shear line, which affected around 15,487 families or 69,323 people in 98 barangays.

55 of the barangays were in the Caraga and Northern Mindanao areas, according to a report by the DSWD Disaster Response Operations Monitoring and Information Center (DROMIC), according to Social Marketing Service director Marlouie Sulima.

The DSWD said in a statement that 45,813 people, or 9,409 impacted households, were relocated to 34 evacuation facilities in Region 10 and Caraga.

However, it was said that 118 families were temporarily residing in the region with their respective relatives.

Sulima stated that in order to guarantee that relief efforts are effectively maintained, they are collaborating closely with local government agencies in the areas where the disaster’s victims are located.

He added that they have about 60,905 pre-positioned family food packs (FFPs) that are in stand-by status, prepared for immediate distribution among the victims. “We are in constant coordination with DSWD field offices in the affected localities to determine the number of family food packs (FFPs) needed to be delivered,” he said.

Sulima added that the National Response Operations Center in the National Capital Region has 39,399 FFPs, and the Visayas Disaster Response Center in Mandaue City has 21,506 FFPs ready.
