Capiz convenes disaster council amidst week-long scattered rainshowers

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (19 February) -- Capiz Gov. Victor Tanco, Sr. has instructed the Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council members to monitor and respond to the needs of Capiceņos affected by the week-long scattered rainshowers in the province and other parts of the country.

"Institute hunger mitigating measures for those affected," said Tanco during the PDCC meeting attended by various concerned government offices and media outlets representatives.

The week-long cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms are brought about by the tail-end of a cold-front based on the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) local station.

"We need the information immediately to respond to the situation of the affected individuals in the field," he added.

The monitoring activity should generate information on how many Capiceņos were already affected and actions that were already taken on affected people, stressed Tanco, who has been known for his service slogan "Labi sa Tanan ang Tawo."

A disaster operations center has also been put up at the Provincial Capitol building that will serve as venue for coordination and relief operations.

"We must strategically position bancas in coastal towns," instructed Tanco to the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) in preparation for flooding problems as water level increases in low lying areas.

The provincial chief executive also appealed to local tri-media practitioners to help disseminate the PDCC warnings and actions for the safety and welfare of the people. (PIA) [top]
