Monsoon floods destroy P21M in rice crops in Candaba

Disaster management officials reported P21 million worth of agriculture damage in Candaba town in Pampanga after days of monsoon rains swamped the municipality.

According to a report of the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO), rice farms suffered damages amounting to a total of P21,679,117.60.

Candaba Mayor Rene Maglanque pledged support by the municipal government to all affected farmers.

Farmers who suffered crop damage would be given seedlings and other forms of financial assistance, he said.

“The affected farmers were already identified by our MAO but those who may not be included in the report may report at the municipal hall,” the mayor said.
