It added that 518, 764 individuals were still in 1,200 evacuation centers.

The death toll from typhoon “Glenda” climbed to 89 while the damage to property rose to P7.6 billion, the NDRRMC said.

It said 62 of the fatalities were from the battered provinces of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon (Calabarzon).
