PCG on Monday (October 11, 2021) assisted the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) in transporting and distributing relief goods to eight families affected by the tropical storm at Barangay Elvita, Narra, Palawan.

Following the quick rise of floodwaters induced by the typhoon, the PCG and MDRRMO evacuated inhabitants of Sitio Lada, Barangay Pangobilian, Brooke’s Point, Palawan.

The safety of senior citizens and youths who were evacuated to the said municipality’s evacuation center right away.

In a video uploaded on its Facebook page, the PCG rescue personnel ensured the safety of individuals stranded in their homes due to Typhoon Maring at 11:00 p.m. yesterday.

They were able to safely rescue ten people, including a child, despite the darkness and the swift flow of unclean floodwaters in Sta. Teresita, Cagayan. They were cautiously transported to the closest evacuation facility for aid.

Northern Luzon was battered with torrential rains from Maring, which was set to leave the Philippine area of responsibility.

As of 11 AM, the storm was spotted 315 kilometers of Calayan, Cagayan.
