At least 108 areas in six regions of Luzon have been declared disaster zones as a result of the combined effects of Typhoon Egay and the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat), the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) reported on Tuesday.

According to the NDRRMC's most recent situational assessment, these cities and municipalities are located in the Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, and the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR).

Despite the fact that Egay was able to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Thursday, the NDRRMC stated that along with Habagat, it affected 2,452,738 people, or 668,974 families, in 4,164 barangays around the country.

In addition, the bad weather displaced 50,467 people, or 13,718 families, in 736 evacuation shelters, while 262,008 people, or 63,086 families, were forced to stay in areas other than evacuation centers.


Seven people who were previously reported missing due to Egay and the Habagat have also been discovered, with the NDRRMC reporting that only 13 people are still missing.

The agency had reported on its daily situational report since July 28 that 20 people had gone missing as a result of Egay and the Habagat.

Eight of the 13 people currently missing were from the Central African Republic, four from the Cagayan Valley, and one from the Ilocos Region.

The reported death toll, on the other hand, remained at 25—two of the fatalities had been confirmed, while the remaining 23 were still being investigated.


The projected cost of infrastructure damage remained at P3,510,282,156, while the agriculture sector suffered damage and losses totaling P1,965,320,443.

Typhoons Egay and Habagat also caused damage to 41,591 dwellings valued at P344,000, with 39,958 of them partially damaged and 1,633 completely destroyed.

According to the NDRRMC report, 70 roads and three bridges are still impassable.

There were 108 cities and municipalities that experienced power outages, two that had water outages, and eight that had communication outages.


A total of P153,900,517.83 in assistance has already been supplied to the impacted districts, the agency added.

Typhoon Falcon is currently enhancing the Southwest Monsoon, bringing monsoon rainfall to the western section of Luzon during the next three days.
