Bicol, Philippines - Nearly 6,000 residents have lost their homes in Albay due to Typhoon Rolly, according to Governor Al Francis Bichara.

"There are about maybe 6,000 homeless because their houses were totally damaged along the coastline and riverbanks," he said in an ANC interview.

"Until now, some of the houses are still submerged and they have to stay in evacuation centers," Bichara added.

Until now there is no electricty in the entire province.

"More or less, according to the electric cooperative, within the Legazpi area and some neighboring towns, we may have electricity within two weeks time, but it depends on the NGCP if they can do the repair of the transmission lines and the towers," aniya.

The governor announced that there is enough water supply in the province.

Bichara appealed to the government for help.

"We only have about P60 million calamity fund for the next two months," he said.

"With so many homeless people, they are all in evacuation centers, so we need more than that," Bichara added.

The governor also demanded food and construction equipment for his constituency.
