110 families housed in 12 evac centers in CAR
by Ofelia C. Empian

Families affected by Typhoon Ompong are accommodated in 12 evacuation centers in the Cordillera, according to the Department of Social Welfare and Development. 

In their data as of Oct. 5, the 12 open evacuation sites house 110 families or 350 individuals.

The biggest number of evacuees is temporarily stayed at the Benguet Sports Center in Wangal, La Trinidad, Benguet totaling to 41 families or 100 individuals.

Many of the evacuees are those who  lost their houses during the onslaught of Typhoon Ompong. There are 1,756 totally damaged houses while 38,995 other houses are partially damaged. 

DSWD-Cordillera Director Janet Armas said her office and its partners are still looking for national agencies with available lots to set up tents for the affected families.

She said some of the affected families already went to live with relatives temporarily.

“We appeal to the affected families and individuals to report to us if they are going to their relatives. We will still provide assistance to them even if they will not go to the designated evacuation centers. I know they will be more comfortable with them,” Armas said. 

She said the combined assistance of various entities to the affected individuals amounted to P47.6 million broken down as: local government unit P16.8M, DSWD  P27.5M; and non-government organizations and other groups  P3.18M.

Armas said 102,648 families or 400,491 individuals in the Cordillera were affected by the typhoon that claimed more than 100 lives in Baguio, Benguet, and Mountain Province.
