OCD Sends More Aid To Flood-Affected Agusan Del Norte Town


How do you feel about this story?


Despite returning home from evacuation centers, flood-affected residents in Las Nieves town, Agusan del Norte province continue to receive government aid.

On Tuesday, the Office of Civil Defense in the Caraga Region (OCD-13) sent 172 family packs, 735 bottled water, 499 boxes of hygiene kits, and 287 pieces of blankets for distribution to residents in different villages.

Flooding affected at least 14 communities in Las Nieves during the second week of this month as the Agusan River rose due to heavy rains caused by a shear line and trough of a low-pressure area.

The flooding forced 3,754 families or 14,331 individuals to temporarily take shelter in evacuation centers.

Sangguniang Bayan Member Avelina Rosales and Jover Manliguez, chief of the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office, received the additional relief goods from OCD-13.

“The affected families are now settled in their homes, but these relief goods will help them as they are still recovering from the effects of the recent calamity,” Rosales said in a statement on Tuesday.

She said the local government will mobilize its manpower and resources to immediately distribute the relief goods to the affected families. (PNA)
