MANILA – The Tantangan town in South Cotabato is under a state of calamity Wednesday due to severe flooding and landslides that have so far affected 600 families.

Tantangan Mayor Benjamin Figueroa said the municipal council issued the declaration of state of calamity to facilitate the release of needed funds to address the impact of the calamity. So far, eight of the town’s 13 barangays have been affected.

The flooding on its third day had destroyed around P28.3 million worth of agricultural crops.

The mayor said the flood destroyed a total of 394 hectares of rice farmlands in six barangays.

Mayor Figueroa said, “Most of these crops are in the seeding and vegetative stages but there are some that are almost ready for harvest.”

The mayor said a number of houses and infrastructure facilities also sustained some damages as a result of the floods but their assessment is still ongoing.

The calamity has affected a total of 600 families or about 2,500 individuals.

This figure however does not include the 145 families from Barangay New Iloilo who were evacuated to the municipal gymnasium due to the severe floods.

The evacuation was undertaken after waist-deep floodwaters submerged the area as a result of hours of heavy rains on Tuesday night.

On Monday, five villages in the area were also initially hit by severe floods and landslides due hours of almost nonstop rains that started on Sunday night.

A portion of the national highway in Barangay San Felipe was submerged in knee-deep floodwaters on Monday morning, slowing down the movement of local residents to the polling precincts in Monday’s barangay elections.
