KORONADAL CITY, Philippines — More than 2,000 villagers in low-lying areas in South Cotabato were displaced by flash floods due to heavy rains spawned by the southwest monsoon on Friday.

Residents of Tantangan town were hardest hit by flooding, which also affected a number of agricultural farms in Norala.

South Cotabato Gov. Reynaldo Tamayo said rescue personnel from the provincial government have been reaching out to flood-stricken communities.

Last week, a number of barangays in the province were also hit by flashfloods spawned by torrential rains.

“The provincial government is doing its best to attend to the needs of the affected residents,” Tamayo said.
