At least 1,411 families or 5,462 persons in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte are currently staying in evacuation centers and with relatives due to howling winds and heavy rains that triggered landslides, floods, uprooted trees, toppled electric posts, and damaged roads and houses in this part of northern Luzon.

Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer Lilian Rin confirmed this on Thursday as she reported the provincial government has initially prepositioned relief goods in Pagudpud town.

Due to incessant rains and strong winds spawned by Typhoon Ulysses in the northernmost part of the province, Rin said two houses were partially damaged in Barangay Balaoi due to landslide and one in Barangay Agassi due to a fallen tree.

“Since yesterday, we have delivered at least 400 family packs in Pagudpud as a counterpart from the provincial government,” Rin said.
