NDRRMC: Locals affected by Egay and habagat reaches over 7,000


MANILA, Philippines — The number of locals affected by the combined effects of tropical storm Egay (international name: Doksuri) and southwest monsoon or “habagat,” has reached more than 7,000, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said on Sunday.

According to NDRRMC’s 8 a.m. situational report, Egay and habagat have so far affected 7,662 individuals or 2,353 families and displaced 1,154 locals in six barangay within Region 6 (Western Visayas).


The agency said the displaced locals were transferred to five evacuation centers within the region.


Meanwhile, the report also said that activities in seaports and airports within and near the region remain unaffected.

However, the state weather bureau earlier said that a gale warning was raised in the northern coast of Camarines Sur; north and eastern coasts of Catanduanes; the eastern coast of Albay; the eastern coast of Sorsogon; northern and east coasts of Northern Samar; Eastern Samar; the eastern coast of Surigao del Norte, including Siargao and Bucas Grande islands; and Dinagat Islands due to Egay.

According to its 5 a.m. weather bulletin, Egay was last monitored 705 kilometers (km) east of Daet, Camarines Norte, moving 10 kilometers per hour (kph) and carrying maximum sustained winds of 85 kph and gusts of up to 105 kph.

The state weather bureau said the typhoon’s trough or extension continues to bring rains in the eastern part of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Northeastern Mindanao. At the same time, habagat affects the western part of the country, a large part of Mimaropa (Mindoro Oriental and Occidental, Marinduque, Romblon, and Palawan), and the rest of Visayas.
