OCD: one death reported due to Domeng, other fatalities still being confirmed

LATE POST June 11, 2018 11:00 PM by Kristan Carag The Office of Civil Defense (OCD) is still verifying other reported fatalities due to the onslaught of Typhoon Domeng in the Philippines. As of recent reports, the OCD and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) have only confirmed the death of Algemon Dalisam Nuñez, a 27-year old resort worker in Brgy. Corong-Corong, El Nido, Palawan.

The body of Nuñez was discovered last June 8 in the shores of Brgy. Corong – Corong, after he went missing last June 6.

According to reports, Nunez drowned after he fell from a jet ski due to the strong currents caused by Typhoon Domeng, which left the Philippine Area of Responsibility last June 10.

Meron pa tayong kino-confirm, pero amin na lamang i-uulat iyon kung sakala ma-verify natin yung mga status na hinahanap natin,” Dir. Edgar Posadas, spokesperson of the OCD, said during DZRH’s One On One.

Meanwhile, Posadas also reported that residents of flooded areas left their homes last June 9, but immediately returned the next day after the waters subsided.

Nagkaroon tayo ng paglilikas doon, pero sandali lang, sa mga areas na mga binaha talaga. Naka-balik din sila on the following morning, nung wala na yung baha,” Posadas said.

Also, during the height of Domeng, some passengers were also stranded in seaports of Cavite, and Camarines Sur.

Currently, an orange rainfall warning alert is raised over Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas, and Rizal due to the southwest monsoon that is enhanced by Typhoon Domeng.

A yellow rainfall warning alert has also been raised over Bulacan, Pampanga, Bataan, Laguna, and northern portion of Quezon.
