Aid is reaching the province, but delivery of relief goods to island villages is hampered because 90 percent of motorized boats have been destroyed. Helicopters are delivering food and other goods but cannot fly when the weather is bad.

— Capiz: 24 dead, 1 missing. TV footage showed damage to some houses, but it did not appear extensive.

— Aklan: 5 dead.
