Each family was given P2,000 worth of financial assistance, as well as sleeping mats and hygiene kits.
The congressman said the city government and his congressional office will also give assistance to the family of the victim who died in the incident.
The Office of Mayor Eric will also help the victims in building their new houses by providing construction materials.
