“Pinaghandaan ng Bangsamoro government ang Bagyong Paeng, bago pa man ito tumama sa ating rehiyon.  Gayon pa man, ang walang tigil na pagbuhos ng ulan, simula kagabi ay nagdulot ng pag-apaw ng mga ilog at dagat, na siya naman nagdulot ng landslide at matinding pagbaha,” Ebhrahim said.  

(The Bangsamoro government prepared even before Severe Tropical Storm Paeng hit our region. Despite this, the non-stop rain beginning last night caused rivers to overflow, which triggered landslides and floods). 

Forty deaths due to Paeng have so far been reported in the BARMM.
