The country’s President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. carried out an aerial inspection of the affected province in the southern part of the country.

Marcos today ordered officials to speed up the distribution of humanitarian aid packages and called for better preparations ahead of four more tropical storms the weather service predicts the country will face before the end of the year.

“When we did the aerial inspection, I noticed that landslides occurred on bare mountains and that was the problem,” noted Marcos, who also visited a center for displaced people in Maguindanao province.

Nalge caused the most casualties in the southern Bangsamoro Autonomous Region due to rain-triggered landslides in deforested areas.

The Philippines, an archipelago of more than 7,600 islands, faces an average of 20 typhoons a year, while frequent landslides and floods are attributed to the increasing intensity of this weather phenomenon due to climate change.
