Super Typhoon Egay and the intensified Southwest Monsoon or Habagat caused high winds and flooding in some areas of the Country.

According to reports, some boats sank in Bulan, Sorsogon due to the high seas. Typhoon Signal Number 1 was declared in the province, prohibiting fishermen from harvesting.

As the big storm approaches, Bangued, Abra people are getting ready to leave.

Because of a temporary access road in Laua-an, Antique that was knee-deep in water, commuters in Visayas had to cross the Paliwan River using a rope.


Strong waves also forced the fisherman in a barrio in Catbalogan, Samar, to secure their boats behind a seawall.

Due to the severe weather, fishing has also been suspended in Tagbilaran, Bohol.

In Pigcawayan, Cotabato, the ongoing rains led to flooding and congested traffic.

According to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), Super Typhoon Egay and the Southwest Monsoon have affected a total of 16,888 persons, or 4,554 families, in 28 barangays in Ilocos, Calabarzon, Bicol, Western Visayas, and Northern Mindanao.


38 people, or 16 families, are staying in one of three evacuation centers while 62 people, or 12 families, are finding shelter in other locations.

Eight homes have reportedly been damaged thus far, seven partially and one entirely as a result of Egay and the Southwest Monsoon.

Western Visayas had one injury report, NDRRMC reported.

The NDRRMC reports that there was a water supply issue in one region of Bicol and a power outage in another.
