'Lando' damage in Bicol reaches P39-M

NAGA CITY—Although the Bicol region was not hit directly by Lando, the typhoon managed to destroy some P39-million pesos' worth of agricultural products.

Emily Bordado of the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Office 5's Agriculture and Fisheries Information Section said the estimated amount is based on reports from the towns of Camaligan and Nabua in Camarines Sur, and Daet in Camarines Norte.

Around 1,700 hectares of agricultural land were affected due to the strong winds and flooding.
Some 200 hectares, she added, have been totally damaged and can no longer be recovered.

Meanwhile, the DA national office reported that across the nation, the damage to agriculture reached over P6 billion, with rice production incurring the largest loss.

Agriculture Sec. Proceso Alcala said that only 269,694 hectares of 272,006 hectares of rice land have a chance of recovery.

He added that he hopes for good weather so those who are close to harvesting stage can be saved and reaped with the use of combined harvesters.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM /With report from DA
