The province of Abra has been placed under a state of calamity after being assessed as the most devastated of all the provinces in the Cordillera region following the onslaught of Tropical Storm Mario and the enhanced Southwest Monsoon.

More than P406 million worth of crops and infrastructure were destroyed in the region, particularly in Abra.

The Cordillera Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CRDRRMC) convened its technical working group meeting on Friday (September 26) to asses the damage of the tropical storm and the monsoon.

The declaration was approved by Abra Governor Eustaquio Bersamin on September 24 and endorsed on the same day to the CRDRRMC as damages in Abra alone was estimated to be more than P346 million.

Meanwhile, Alex Uy, regional director of the Office of Civil Defense in the Cordillera Autonomous Region, said they will still need to validate the provincial declaration as the criteria for declaring a state of calamity means that at least 20 percent of of the population are in need of emergency assistance, at least 40 percent of the means of livelihood were destroyed, major roads and bridges are impassable or destroyed for at least a week, and widespread destruction of agriculture and fisheries. – 9News Online, from a report by JM Agreda
