The human and economic toll from drought is increasingly apparent in MiMaRoPa.

Based on the initial report of PDDRM, Occidental Mindoro, as of 3:00 PM April 15, 2016, there are six (6) affected municipalities from the province of Occidental Mindoro which have been adversely affected by El Nino. These are municipalities of Looc, Lubang, Magsaysay, San Jose, Sta. Cruz and Sablayan.

Members of DSWD QRT are continuously updating the data of number of affected barangays, families and persons in MiMaRoPa.

Relief goods and other assistance needed are being prepared for quick distribution in the affected areas. Local purchases of drinking water and mongo beans in the provinces of Occidental Mindoro and Palawan are on-going that will form part of food packs.
