Army troops and reservists evacuated families affected by flooding due to torrential rains dumped by Tropical Storm “Agaton”—the first tropical cyclone to directly affect the country this year— in Davao City and different areas of Davao Region on April 6 to 7, 2022.

The Army Reserve Command’s 1103rd Ready Reserve Infantry Battalion of 11th Regional Community Defense Group together with troops of 66th Infantry Battalion of 10th Infantry Division launched on April 6, 2022, humanitarian assistance and disaster response (HADR) to 18 families or 45 individuals affected by flooding in Barangay Bantacan, New Bataan, Poblacion, and San Miguel, Compostela, Davao De Oro.

While Army’s 1102nd Community Defense Center (CDC) and 1102nd Ready Reserve Infantry Battalion hand-in-hand assisted families affected by flash floods in Porok 3-A Tumana, Barangay Pag-asa, Kapalong, Davao del Norte on April 7, 2022. Likewise, Army’s 1105th CDC rescued families and individuals swamped in low-lying areas of Davao City.

A total of 2,794 individuals were rescued by Army troops and Reservists from the aftermath of Tropical Storm “Agaton” in the flood-affected areas in Davao.

Meanwhile, Army’s 1104th CDC in cooperation with the province’s social welfare and development office distributed aid to around 840 families in Barangay Alegria, Cateel, Davao Oriental on the same day.

Philippine Army units in areas under public storm signals remain on alert as “Agaton” continues to linger in the Eastern Visayas region.
