Overview

20/12/2019

Between 2 and 3 December typhoon Tisoy (internationally referred to as Kammuri) made landfall in the Philippines several times, causing heavy winds, rain, and flooding.? As of 15 December, almost 2 million people have been affected.? Over 450,000 people were pre-emptively evacuated in Regions V, VIII, CALABARZON, and MIMAROPA. Most evacuated people have returned home as of 15 December, but around 58,800 people remain displaced, the large majority (around 50,100 people) in evacuation centres. Four people are reported dead and 300 injured.? The main affected regions are in the central Philippines including Bicol, Calabarzon, Eastern Visayas, and MIMAROPA. The affected areas were left with houses and infrastructure destroyed, flooding, and interruptions of electricity and telecommunication. Some people continue to face electricity cuts and impassable roads, although clearing operations are ongoing.?

Apart from needs for emergency shelter and food assistance following the typhoon, livelihood and early recovery assistance are needed. This is especially the case for low-income farming and fishing communities, particularly in Bicol (Region V), where farmland, crops, and boats were lost or destroyed.?
