10 of 11 barangays in Rosario, Agusan Sur flooded due to LPA

by Robert E. Roperos

BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 1 (PIA) – Ten out of 11 barangays in Rosario, Agusan del Sur were engulfed with flood waters as flashflood occurred during the low pressure area (LPA) which struck 30 km west northwest of this city on Dec. 25, 2011.

Agusan del Sur Vice Governor Santiago Cane, in a recent phone-patch interview with a local broadcaster here, said the LPA brought continuous rains for five days resulting in causing floods in the said areas.

Cane said residents of the Rosario town were badly hit by the flashflood and were now housed in an evacuation center in the said municipality.

Cane, who led the team from the provincial government, was able to distribute some packs of relief goods to the said barangays who were severely affected with the flashfloods. He added the area is not accessible already as flood waters have submerged houses of the residents.

“There is one barangay in the area where only the board of the basketball ring is only visible as it is already submerged in flood water,” Cane said.

To date, the provincial government of Agusan del Sur were able to distribute relief packs to some 2,826 family-victims of the flood. Each pack contains five kilos of rice, one liter mineral water, five cans sardines, five noodles, five sachets 3-in-1 coffee, five MILO sachets, two pcs. Odong, one pack powdered milk, and some medicines, it was learned.

During the crisis situation, Governor Eddiebong Plaza immediately directed the authorities and concerned government agencies to conduct rescue and relief operations to the said affected barangays, said Cane. (PIA-Caraga)
