WATCH: Datu Odin Sinsuat submerged in deep flood due to Paeng’s fury
MANILA, Philippines – The town of Datu Odin Sinsuat in Maguindanao del Norte was submerged in a deep flood due to the wrath of Tropical Storm Paeng (international name: Nalgae).
An aerial inspection conducted by the Philippine Coast Guard Aviation Force on Sunday showed that the municipality was still plagued by heavy flooding caused by Paeng.
The Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao bore the brunt of Paeng, leaving at least 53 people dead in the area, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction Council.
Around 1.8 million individuals or 575,728 families were affected by Paeng’s rage.
The state weather bureau, in its 5 a.m. weather update on Monday, said Paeng is seen to leave the Philippine area of responsibility by afternoon or evening, but it will still bring severe winds and rains in several areas across the archipelago.
