The President visits the victims of the flash floods in Sulu

Considered the first phenomenon in the province, the flash floods followed two days of storm surges last Feb. 1 and 2, which prompted Jolo Mayor Hussin Amin to declare a state of calamity in the entire municipality last Feb.4 to help the affected barangays utilize their calamity funds.

Affected by the flash floods were two municipalities, namely, Jolo and
Patikul and six barangays in the province of Sulu.

Some parts of Jolo are still under flood water since rains normally come at 8 p.m. everyday but no longer the magnitude of a surge, according to local residents here.

President Benigno Simeon Aquino III talks with the soldiers during the dialogue at the Camp Teodulfo Bautista, Jolo, Sulu Friday February 11, 2011 after distributing family food packs to 300 families displaced by flashfloods and tornado that hit the province. The tornado and flashfloods destroyed some P100-million worth of property in two municipalities and six barangays prompting Jolo Mayor Hussin Amin to declare a State of Calamity in the entire municipality.
