Severe Tropical Storm Paeng (Nalgae) made its fourth landfall in Santa Cruz, Marinduque, at 8:40 am on Saturday, October 29. By 10 AM on Saturday, Paeng was already in the vicinity of Santa Cruz’s neighboring municipality, Mogpog, and many families got affected by the severe rainfall caused by flashfloods and landfalls.
The Open Heart Foundation did not miss the chance to grab this opportunity to help other people who are in need. One member of our Board of Trustees, Ms. Rovelita Bermejo who came from the area informed that one of the Barangays of Marinduque devastated by flash flood was Brgy. Nangka 1, Mogpog, Marinduque.
