In total, 509 houses have been destroyed while another 12,571 sustained damage.

Fifteen-thousand ha of rice and 1,700 ha of industrial plantation also suffered damages, while nearly 9,000 fowls and 17,000 cattle were killed due to natural disasters.


Several households across the country are still unable to move into their settlement domiciles, as the country is still reeling from the impacts of natural disasters last year and in first half of 2018.
