About 30,000 people fled from their houses after floods submerged several towns in Davao del Norte, officials said today.
Hours of torrential rain Tuesday night burst the banks of Lasang river in the area, inundating rice paddies and banana plantations in Carmen and Dujali, according to Sonio Sanchez, provincial disaster risk reduction and management division chief.

Floodwaters as high as nine feet swamped 16 villages in Carmen town, forcing some 5, 980 families to flee, Octavio Valle, the town administrator, he added.
