TUGUEGARAO CITY –– At least 50 villages in Cagayan province remained isolated by floods and local officials will airlift the relief goods to aid the displaced residents.

The Cagayan government has tapped the help of the Philippine Air Force (PAF) to deliver relief goods to the flood-hit villages in the towns of Enrile, Baggao, Amulung, Alcala, Lal-lo, and Sto. Niño.
