Isabela declares calamity,
Moises Padilla to follow


Flood-hit Isabela town in Negros Occidental has been declared in a state of calamity, while Moises Padilla town officials are expected to make a similar declaration next week.

A Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office report as of 4 p.m. yesterday said flooding brought on by Typhoon Mina affected 2,448 families or 9,524 persons in five towns of Negros Occidental, but many who evacuated had returned home after the waters subsided.

Isabela Mayor Francis Malabor said they declared a state of calamity in his town following floods that caused residents to evacuate destroyed agricultural crops, the total cost of which was still being computed.moremoremore
