Villages in Davao still submerged in flood as LPA hovers over Mindanao
Flooded barangays include Maa, Matina and Bankerohan, responding police forces said.
In some areas, including the El Rio Subdivision, the floodwater was already waist-deep.
Reports coming from Davao Oriental revealed that heavy rain and strong wind also battered the typhoon-devastated towns of Boston, Cateel and Baganga.
Police, government soldiers and the city’s Central 911 rescue teams are conducting rescue and evacuation operations in the affected areas.
