MANILA, Philippines – Hundreds of families celebrated Christmas in evacuation centers as Typhoon Ursula (Phanfone) barreled through several provinces in Visayas after first making landfall in Eastern Samar on Tuesday, December 24.

According to the latest report of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), the death toll due to the typhoon climbed to 28 as of 6 am on Friday, December 27. At least 13 deaths were recorded in Iloilo where 6 members of one family were found dead after strong floodwaters swept them away in Batad town.

Leyte, Capiz, and the towns of Medellin and Daanbantayan declared a state of calamity in the aftermath of Ursula.

Pope Francis offered his prayers to Filipinos affected by Ursula after on Thursday, December 26.

In a press statement, development agency Oxfam said that many of the communities along Ursula’s path were still reeling from the impact of Typhoon Tisoy (Kammuri) and were in dire need of support.

People’s Disaster Risk Reduction Network (PDDRN) Executive Director Esteban Masagca said that early assessments of their staff and volunteers indicated that coastal villages urgently need emergency shelter materials, beddings, potable water, and food. 

“Families are urgently requesting emergency shelter-grade materials because the storm completely destroyed their homes along the coast. Families need beddings and mosquito nets, especially as dengue continues to be a major threat in the communities…. It truly saddens us that thousands of families will enter the new year without food, or even homes,” Masagca added. 

Here is a list of relief operations for the communities affected by Typhoon Ursula:
