Tropical Depression AGATON kills or injures 100 people, affecting at least 830,000 others

Tropical Depression AGATON [locally known as “Lingling”] has claimed dozens of lives, leaving dozens more injured or missing, and affecting  more than 830,000 others.

AGATON dumped significant amounts of rain on Mindanao island group and parts of the island of Samar over three days, triggering widespread flooding and landslides, which impacted many hundreds of towns and villages across 15 provinces, said National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

Many of the victims had already lost their homes to Super Typhoon HAIYAN in November.

About 207,000 people have lost their homes and are being moved to evacuation centers.
