Feria leaves 8 people dead, 11 others missing - NDCC

Manila (26 June) -- Eight people perished while 11 others are still missing and five others injured as tropical storm Feria continue to batter some parts of the country, the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) reported Thursday.

Citing reports from the field, Glenn Rabonza, NDCC executive officer and concurrent administrator of the Office of the Civil Defense, said four of the fatalities were hit by a tornado in Perez town in Quezon last Tuesday night.

In Bantayan town in Cebu, two people died due to drowning. The other fatalities were victims of landslides in Cagagayan de Oro City.

According to Rabonza, 37 houses have been recorded destroyed and 551 more have been damaged as Feria wreck havoc in several regions, including Southern Tagalog.

Rabonza said at least 10,228 families or 44,401 persons have been affected by the weather disturbance and they are being attended to by workers from the NDCC, OCD, Department of Social Welfare and Development and local government units, among other agencies.

Rabonza said they have recorded nearly 10,000 passengers who have been stranded at various ports as authorities suspended sea travel to avoid potential mishaps at sea.

Also, he said that the estimated damage to property had been initially placed at P2.5 million but the figure is expected to rise as reports from the field begin to trickle up to the NDCC office in Camp Aguinaldo. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
