As of the latest update on Wednesday morning, the typhoon has inflicted significant damage in various parts of the country, leading to tragic outcomes.
According to the NDRRMC, one fatality has been recorded as a result of the typhoon’s wrath. The unfortunate incident occurred in the Calabarzon region, highlighting the severity of the storm’s impact on vulnerable communities. Moreover, two individuals have sustained injuries due to the typhoon’s destructive force – one reported in Calabarzon and the other in Western Visayas.
The aftermath of Typhoon Egay has brought about a wave of flooding across five regions in the Philippines. In total, the NDRRMC has documented a staggering 58 flooded areas, underscoring the scale of the disaster and the pressing need for assistance and relief efforts in the affected regions.
