The Malabon City government conducted on Monday, Sept. 26, clearing operations after the families who took shelter in evacuation centers due to Super Typhoon Karding were allowed to return to their homes, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

The local government said that the 107 evacuated families began going back to their homes on Monday morning as the typhoon weakened.

Malabon City Mayor Jeannie Sandoval coordinated with the Malabon City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (MCDRRMC) to ensure that the evacuated residents were provided with immediate assistance, especially those residing in high-risk flood areas and near the waterways.

Sandoval and the members of the City Social Welfare and Development Department (CSWDD) also distributed cooked meals and food packs containing rice, and various grocery items for the evacuees to bring home.

Employees of the City Engineering Department also manned the floodgates and pumping stations to observe the water level of Navotas river.

The local government said barangay officials were mobilized to advise the residents in vulnerable areas to vacate their homes and stay at evacuation sites.
