The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said 5 people died in the wake of tropical storm "Mario."

(UPDATE) The NDRRMC revised its figures on Saturday, saying the death toll from Mario was 5 and not seven as earlier reported.

The fatalities include a 2-year-old girl from Bagong Silangan, Quezon City, and a 34-year old male from Barangay Apolonio, Samson, Quezon City, who both drowned; a 69-year-old woman from Rodriguez, Rizal, who suffered head injury secondary to fall; and two 22-year-old men from Sampaloc, Manila, and Cubao, who both died due to electrocution.

At least 7 other people were injured, and one remained missing.

The NDRRMC said the tropical storm caused flooding in 300 areas in Regions I, III, IV-A, IV-B, V, and the National Capital Region (NCR).

The storm has affected over 153,000 families. Of these, over 23,000 or 93,000 individuals are staying in 181 evacuation centers.

Classes in all levels, both public and private schools, in 17 areas are suspended today.

NDRRMC Executive Director Alexander Pama said the national government is working on efficient rescue operations.

Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief General Gregorio Pio Catapang Jr. said, following an aerial check of affected areas, they believe the worst is over, with only Cainta still dealing with knee-deep floods.

Catapang said they are now ready to shift from rescue to relief efforts.
