As of November 2, an initial report of Php 2,241,276,844.75 worth of damages was recorded for the agricultural sector in the region.
Abra has the highest damage amounting to Php 683,331,966.53 followed by Kalinga with Php 614,743,181.65 and Apayao with Php 424, 163,437.50.
Aside from the ravaged areas of corn, rice, highland value crops, cassava and livestock in the provinces, some of the municipalities of Apayao and Kalinga are still semi-isolated; some of the roads are passable but unsafe and several communities have no current and communication access.
Lawin left a distressing situation to the farmers in the provinces of the Cordillera where farming is still the major livelihood. Most of the farmers said that it was their first time to experience the kind of damage they are suffering now.
