CSWD data stated that 120 houses were destroyed while 86 incurred partial damage.

Barangay Labuan officials and police personnel assisted CSWD personnel in conducting assessment and providing assistance to the affected families.

Zamboanga City experienced rain showers and thunderstorms brought by Odette last Friday but strong winds and huge waves damaged houses along its eastern coastline.
