MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. conducted on Monday an aerial survey in areas battered by Typhoon Karding (international name: Noru).

In a Twitter post, the President shared photos of their inspection in Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, and Tarlac.

The photos show that the said areas experienced flooding as waters covered farmlands.

In a follow-up tweet, Marcos wrote their observations on the situation and their action.

“After our aerial inspection today, we found some areas that are still inundated with water,” he posted.

“Nueva Ecija and Aurora are without power. We are sending [generator sets] now,” he added.

Karding, expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Monday night, left around 19,000 households in evacuation centers.
