In Cagayan province (Region II - Cagayan Valley), all 19 sites assessed by IOM were closed. According to the Government data released on the 21st of September, only one evacuation center remains open in the province.1 In Ilocos Norte (Region I - Ilocos Region) all the centers visited by IOM were closed and the Government confirmed that no evacuation centers are currently open in the region. In Benguet (Cordillera Administrative Region), out of the 18 sites visited by IOM, 10 are still open. This is due to the fact that people can’t return home due to floods and landslides. According to the Government estimates, they are currently 45 collective centers in Benguet. As the situation continues to evolve quickly, IOM will carry out regular assessments in Region I and CAR to gather information on IDPs’ needs and better understand the displacement dynamics in host communities.
